2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a Viking Line ferry. BB Jan 2016. Clear golden colour, with an off-white head showing some lace and retaining moderately well. Bubbling a lot. The nose is barely there - I get faint notes of malts and caramel, paper, and a bit of a peppery hint. Tastes similarily, it’s quite malty and papery, and only a stinging herbal bitterness to be found in the overall watery palate. Duh, if this is an IPA, then where are the hops? Strong carbonation, dry finish. An utterly pointless brew.
