3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33cl. Brown-reddish beer with nice copper head. Smell is yeast and acid like. Taste is very nice full of cereal aroma and amber malt. A bit creamy, quite astringent at the finish. The buckweet aroma remains nicely and quite long in the mouse. Bitterness is well balance with the medium sweeteness-malt of this ale. Good beer.

Nice foggy brown, some head, but rather thin and dies down pretty fast. Not much on the nose, maybe some nuts and malts. The taste is interesting - a soft barley-thing is going on here, some caramel and cardboard. Then hops on the back end. Unique and likeable.
