2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle with a brown neck shared by Finn at a rating session in Tromsř. Decent off-white head to a clear amber body. Poor lacing. Dusty hops and caramel nose. Malty taste profile with nuts, buttery malts and caramel supported by notes of dried fruits towards the ending. Medium bodied. Too sweet for a higher score (Tromsř 19.02.2014).
