3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@Grünerløkka brygghus. Dark, hazy yellow with a finger of white, creamy, rocky head. Loads of lacing. Looks incredible. Fresh and inviting aroma of citrus, grains, with a spicy hop character and some yeast underneath it all.. Some alcohol showing through when it warms. Slightly burnt malt flavours, grains, and peppery hops. Light fruits. Semidry, long finish. Nice and thick mouthfeel, creamy carbonation. This is pretty good, but the hop profile was perhaps a bit raw. Otherwise nice and drinkable, and almost belgian in style.
