2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Poured clean amber with a medium, foamy, delicious off white head. Firstly the aroma was a little bit unmatured but after a while come a little caramel with a bit of resiny hops. Medium-weak bodied beer with caramel and malt in the background, the unmatured, unpleasant diacetyl character bits again..But somewhere the flavors of IPA beers lurking with some resiny-citrussy hop, some fruity caramel. It would be better in the future i think.

Draught. Good grassy hop aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Small semi-stable white head. The flavour has a good standard maltiness, nice grassy and grapey hop notes. Nice and well-balanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
IPA my arse. Smells like a lager - plasticky. Pleasant creamy body with nice hops, but all rather subdued. Finish is hops - a bit dry. Good filtered lager, but not so exciting, at least it’s crisp.
