3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange with a four finger off-white slowly dissipating head, leaving plenty of lacings. Aroma is fairly malt driven, with honey and bread. Dried fruit, some sweets. A faint tone of grassy hops in the back. Taste is carefully malty at first, then a more massive maltiness of sugar, bread, honey, dried fruit. A slight growing bitterness towards the end, hint of alcohol. Finishes slight bitter. Medium body, medium carbo, slight oily texture. It’s a bit on the sweeter side, I’d like to try this fresh. Best before date january 2015.
