3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours lovely clear copper-amber with small off-white head.
Nose is bread and honey, hazelnut. Palate adds flowers, toffee, slight metal buzz. Finishes on mild sour note.
Much better with aeration and less chilled, while reasonable 6.1 percent ABV makes it sessionable.
