3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aromatisch malziger Antrunk, würzige und herbe Noten sind erst später vorhanden. Hier spielen angenehme aber nicht wirklich starke ausbalancierte Noten eine Rolle, die für einen Aürzschub sorgen, der im Abgang seinen Höhepunkt erreicht. Im Abgang etwas bitter und, überraschend und erfreulich, etwas fruchtig. 12/10/9/10//9
