3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from tap. Deep golden bordering on orange, delicate white head which dissipated quite quickly. Everything you’d expect on the aroma, Spruce, grapefruit, white pepper. Taste wise it’s quite bitter with a bit more bitter and a hint of caramel malt sweetness. Long, dry finish enhances the bitterness.
