3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the "expensive beer tasting" with heavy, hrabren and ogivlado. Poured a dark amber body with a small white head that went away slowly. SSweet aroma, dull maltiness, some alcohol, but some fruity tropical hop too. Sweetish, mild tropical fruit note in the taste, going into a dull herbal bitterness, good fruity notes, some reminiscent of gummibears. Some alcohol, slightly too much for a second. Though it’s close to going the sweet & sticky way, it’s saved by a fresh citric note, edged with lemon gummie bears. The bitterness here is only medium. Oof... I was expecting something I’d love, got something that went from a disappointment back to "kinda like it". It’s a very good beer, and I might be ever so slightly underrating it, but I don’t feel comfortable giving it more than this.
