1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Colored in a mixture of amber and ochre with a creamy tan fast vanishing head. The aroma contains slight herbal and spicy notes with hints of bread and dough. However, the aroma as such is not really strong. The flavor is light in a worse sense as not much flavor can be found. Taste is light sweet and bitter. The body joins in the overall composition as it is very light and watery and just a very mild bitter finish.
