2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can [6.3% abv]. Clear, dark amber colour with small to average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma, a touch of toffee. Taste is minimally sweet malty, some caramel, some toffee, a touch of marzipan and hazelnut, minimally biting hop bitterness as counterweight, maybe a very cautious touch of red berries; very late hints of citrusy hop. You don’t get full caramel, toffee and marzipan flavours in three parallel strands, there’s rather on strand, yarned out of "something like" or portions of caramel, toffee and marzipan (or, more technically speaking, we come upon an adjunction, not a conjunction, of caramel etc.).
