4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Rich smell of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, kiwi) and orange, tangerine and berries. Other than that, spices,
resin, pine and a bit of caramel. Wonderful.
Mouthfeel: Medium creamy and foamy body, oily texture.
Taste: Bitter and spicy, potent in alcohol, but not overly so. Unripe olives, herbs, grapefruit bitterness and pine on the
palate, some caramel sweetness at the background. Just a tiny hint of phenols.
Finish: Bitter, long, astringent finish.
Overall: Bitter, flavoursome, well-rounded, easy to drink. Splendid.

Tap. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Hops, sweet and tingly sourness in aroma. Bland mouthfeel. Grainy, caramel, weird kind of sweetness in flavor. Although I can’t taste alcohol I can tell it’s there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
Sweet caramelly aroma, some fruity hops too. Some cheesey retronasals. Body smooth, pleasant carbonation, cuts through the sweetness that’s there. Balanced sweet caramelly malts. Earthy bitterness, but a real bitter tingle too. Fatty woolly finish. Covers alcohol quite well. Anna would go up from 3.0 to 3.1, but I’m more a 3.2 being pulled down to 3.1.
