3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at home, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 8%
Deep copper orange colour on the body with good acticity in it. Clear, with a tall and thick off-white head, with great retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma has plenty of malts and sugar as I expected, but is also quite fruity, with ripe red fruits, so that’s a plus.
Taste is sweet, very malty, a bit medicinal, some notes of alcohol but it doesn’t feel like an 8% beer, lots of sugar, kumquats. Very good!
Meduim body, good carbonation, very smooth, a bit sticky on the palate.
Great surprise this one, I expected a malty mess but it proved me wrong. Very drinkable, proceed with caution.
