3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra, Tiel. Copper colour with a small off-white head. Hoppy aroma with some caramel. Taste is bittersweet with some wood, oak, in it. The alcohol is present but very well hidden nonetheless. Although I love most Jopen beers and like this one it isn’t the best I ever had, the overall aroma and taste are not entirely to my liking. Still, this is a skillfully brewed beer.
