3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Deep red-purple with a tan cream. Sappy, well-toasted and toffee malts are set against grassy, lightly citric hops. Strong toffee flavors dry into toast and light roast before a moderate bitterness and cola acidity; bright and citric aftertaste. High, fine carbonation on a slick and slightly thick body.
Balanced and enjoyable though it feels a bit compressed, muted, at times.
50 cl bottle, best before 03 June 2009.
