Can 50 cl. Pours copper orange clear with a small fluffy head. Nice citrus in the taste with some metallic notes too. Possibly too cold. Should let it air some first. This one not too complex but refreshing.

Good medium strong aroma has roasted toffee and nuts. Freshness from hops. Colour is nice orange brown. Short head. Hopsy flavor has also nice maltiness. Dry and light in mouth, bit bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Overall quite good and tasty. Has bit of house flavor from vegetables when warmer but still ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml can. Pours slightly hazy copper to amber colour with medium-sized off-white head. Fruity and floral aroma with citrus, raisins, sweet malt, cereal and barnyard. Taste of fruity hops, caramel malt and bread. Medium bodied, a bit oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation and long mild hoppy finish. Quite a good ale when you consider availability and price. Well-balanced and pleasant to drink but a bit simple and the taste could be slightly stronger. In any case a decent one.
