3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a beautiful opaque orange amber with a medium beige head. Nose is kind of confused, with bready malts and obscured hops. Flavour brings out dark fruits, resinous hops, and caramel malts. Not the most complex beer, surprisingly, but well-balanced and full-bodied. Overrated, but very good.
