2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden colored one and it has a small really bubbly quickly islandy white top. It has a really unique aroma. Hard to describe, but it smells really artificial and sweet. A bit like old detergent and lots of sweet wood syrup. Strange, not sure in I’m loving it. Thank god it does not taste like that at all. More like a English bitter then a pale ale with some drops of thin apple soup. The carbonation level is about average and it has a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Lots if bitter hops here, a bit of burned wood, flower water and minerals. Not to inviting, memorable or exciting, but fairly drinkable. 08.07.2013
