1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
33 cL bottle thanks to Ungstrup. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Very herbal garlic aroma. Flavour is soft malty but mainly heavy garlic flavour. Soft finish, once I get past the garlic it is okay but the garlic aroma ruines this beer for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a largeish, foamy head. Strange aroma of pea soup and onions. Smoothly malty, slightly herby-grassy and acidic flavor with some honey hints. More smooth and orange-fruity with yeast. Medium-bodied, lightly acidic and foamy-carbonated palate. A bit strange and acidic brew, no need to sample again.

Medium white head. Hazy yellow body with lots of carbonation. Fruity, sweetish, herbal aroma with mealy, gingery notes. Sweet bitterish rounded fruity caramel taste with herbal notes. Somewhat spicy and peppery. Dry, herbal aftertaste. Not bad, but not great. (0.33l bottle.)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Soft round beer with a subdues spiciness. Garlic? A whiff of it, maybe, but this wasn’t much of a beer. Only if you need to keep vampires at bay.
