2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Gallows Bird Kekri ’09) The appearance of this beer wasn’t really pleasing: muddy yellow and hazy with tiny head. The aroma wasn’t really an improvement. When the beer was cold, the aroma resembled a plastic toy. When the beer got warmer the plasticness disappeared and was replaced by grassy hops and the smell of cowhouse. To my surprise, the taste was good: nice grassy hops, balancing sweetness and fruitiness and at the end quite fitting bitterness that didn’t linger on my tongue too long.

0,5 l on tap @ The Gallows Bird
Appearance: slightly muddy, light yellowish brown, no foam. Aroma is quite refreshing with lots of lemonish hops, little bit birchy. Taste is quite hoppy and grassy with lemonish herbs. Mouthfeel is rich and tasty.
