3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Blonde-golden beer with medium white head, lacing ok. Drunk from the special Hopus glasses. Grainy and hoppy smell, some malty notes in it. Taste is grainy and malty, and after a while a nice light bitter hoppy finish comes into your mouth. Although I expected this beer more bitter (as a hoppy beer), it has a wonderful taste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer pours a golden yellow with a large white head leaving good lacing down the sides (I actually poured this into a half yard glass though). initial aromas are skunky, clove, and a little leather. Not a very enticing aroma. The sip confirms the aroma. The taste is light, slightly bitter and not that good. Not a very good beer in my opinion.
