3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Crowbar. This is a near-clear golden looking one with a nice big lingering and sidesticking white top. The nose is mild grainy with reeds, soft toffee sweetness and pine cones. Quite inviting. It’s mild to average on the carbonation and it has a nice oily mouthfeel. Soft buttery flavors at first, lots of caramel and herbal branches. Bitter birch juices, resin and a fair amount of citrus. Tastes quite nice, a bit astringent finish and aftertaste on this. Something I could purchase again. 14.02.2014
