2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and prunes. The taste is much dryer than you would expect from the sweet aroma, and the flavour is predominantly of roasted malts with not much hop flavour. A little thin and watery with a very short finish. Nothing offensive in this beer, but rather thin and unmemorable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Toulon IKEA. As expected, nothing offensive, no off flavors (cardboard, skunk, etc). So a clean brew.... but.... Dark in appearance but transparent (held near a light source), not much head. Aroma is watery grains and sugar (for you homebrewers/brewers it smells like DME). Flavor is watery caramel with plenty of carbonation. Basically tastes like a simple sweet wort.
