30cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small slightly off-white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitter with some sweet tones. Caramel, brown sugar, herbs, dark fruits and some spices. Not the best brew, way too watery for my taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 300 ml, thanks to ShivanDragon! Poured into a large tulip glass. ABV 5.5%
Deep caramel colour on the body, crystal clear, with a thin line of off-white foam on top with low retention and no lacing on the glass.
Aroma ofsweet caramel malts.
Taste is also very malty, sweet, with caramel and iron notes. A touch of bitterness appears on the aftertaste after quite long time.
Very thin body and low carbonation, almost watery.
Nothing special here.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark amber, light beige head. Pilsener like aroma. Taste is malty, It’s a bit like a sweet pilsener with the malts being just a bit roasted. Not sure what to think of it. It’s ok I guess.
