3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the brewery tap Off-white to lighty brown head which is a mixture of a creamy and a rocky head. Excellent lace. The head lasts mostly. Clear, deep brown (deep caramel) body. Aroma of malts (cookie, straw, light caramel), flowers, vanilla. Lightly seet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. The heavy malts are appearing in the flavour in the end. So, the flavour is quite complex with some spices. Lightly bodied. Fizzy carbonation.
