3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The rosemary here is just more pleasant on the nose than the palate. Smells like a rosemary forest. But upon drinking, one soon discovers the rosemary is truly alone. No interest from the yeast, no backing from malt, and no balance from hops. Really an interesting beer, and I am not sorry to have tried it, but it just doesn’t have the complexity that would have made it great.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Alko Arkadia. Hazy light brown colour a fair bit of largish particles. small mostly vanishing white head. Plenty of rosemary on the nose, grain, more rosemary, ginger, leather and pepper with a hint of honey in the mouth. Taste is initially fairly balanced, slightly acidic and papery, turning into a bittersweet shortish finish with a slightly alcoholic feel. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, dry mouthfeel. Quite an interesting brew that unfortunately felt a bit like there was something wrong with it, based on the markings on the cap it expired in August 2013

Su aroma y sabor a romero domina y sorprende, combina muy bien con carnes de caza. Es muy equilibrada, pero, te tiene que gustar el romero, si no mejor otra... ¡A mí me encanta!

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botella. Romaní ho impregna tot, l’aroma a bosc mediterrà ho impregna tot però a la boca i al paladar fa que amagi defectes com la poca amargor i l’ensucrament. Tot i així bona triple i refrescant. El que seria aquesta birra amb un dryhopping de llúpol americà..

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am not very fan of honey beers, but it was a gift from my wife. It was a nice surprise to me.
Colour pale amber with a thin head that dissapers very quickly.
Aroma is plenty of rosemary and herb, very refreshing.
Taste is a mirrow of the aroma. Lots of rosemary at the beginning, then you can feel the rosemary honey coming in. The mix is really good, because of the rosemary, the beer is not so much sweet due to the honey add.
Non alcohol apreciated. Neutral yeast notes and low bitterness of fresh herbal hops.
Dry and nice finish.
Good and original beer. If you are not a rosemary fan, you may find it excesive.
