2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a let down, malty and sweet caramels in aroma. Follows in taste, but nothing really happends, its stays there. Perhaps too sweet, and definately would have been better with higher rates of hops.

@ Basunen 15-11-14: ganska maltig doft. Rätt söt. Även smaken är söt och maltig. Trevlig alkohol som värmer lite men smakmessig lite ensidig.
