2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, deep cooper to brown body with a small, frothy, short-lived, beige head. Rather strong aroma of coffee, ash and a pretty burnt overall feel. Strong flavour of lightly burnt malt, coffee, ash, hints of smoke and some generic fruits. Light-bodied and dry. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Too boring, too expensive.

Pours a clear brown with an inch of offwhite head. Fruity yeast notes on a malty background. Some toast and bready notes as well. Taste is mellow, moderate malty with a toasty, bready touch. Somewhat lacking in body, but since its the "light" version that was sort of expected. Decent.
