3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33 cl bottle from local supermarket; BBD: May 17th 2014) Pours a cloudy amber with medium, tan head and lace. Aroma is malty with notes of grain and caramel alongside some herbal hints. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium to full body and quite a bitter finish. Well balanced flavour with more of a bitterness than a sweetness in the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear brown, smooth light brown head. Aroma is somewhat malty, also very nicely flowery hoppy, with notes of oranges. soft hoppy, flavorfull, but not that butter. Flavor is malty, hoppy, more bitter hoppy flavor than the aroma, while the malts just bare make it to create a balance. Still very tasty, and for a 4.7% alc. beer this is VERY impressive.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 4.7%. Caramelly hop aroma, piney and a little rough. Almost clear greyish brown colour. Stable tan head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, caramelly with a little piney hop. The aftertaste is not so good, a little sewery, like spent grain, sourish cheap-tasting and unpleasant.
