1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draught @ Durty Nelly’s, Amsterdam. Copper coloured with an off white head. Sweet malts, apple, caramel and a slight shandyish note in the nose. Taste is similar, sweet and malty with a hint of hop biterness below. I did find it easy to drink and smooth going down which bumped the numbers slightly higher than the average pub swill.
