@Porec, Kroatie gekocht bij Kaufland
caramelbruin, helder met minimaal witte kraag
aroma: lichte caramel, gebrand mout, fruitig
smaken: medium bruine suiker zoet, donkere fruiten, geroosterde- cara- en gebrande mouten, toffee, linzen
medium body, dun, laag co2, afdronk: zoetig:
weinig inspirerend bier, aroma doet volle smaken verwachten, helaas allemaal wat zwak/flets, daarnaast echter best wel drinkbaar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
27/07 A 0.75 fliptop bottle, as Cotta 42. It poured hazy brown body with medium sized head. Very fine lightly sweet caramel, chocolate and some dark fruits. Flavor was also a bit on the sweet side, dark chocolate, caramel, coffee and dogfood (which might be these lentils) . Medium bodied, even fuller with quite fine, long dark malt, pleasantly toasted (with some roasted characters) finish. Really good, but 7 euros for a bottle retail, well...

Ok soft slightyl roasty, slightly creamy nice maly taste, vague fruitiness and yeah, vague lentils, which I might not have noted if I hadn’t read teh label but hey! They were there! Mild carbonation bite. Yeah, tasty.
