2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours muddy brown with very little head. Aroma was a weird mix of wild weeds, wood, barley, and floor scrapings from a barn - unique if nothing else. Taste is a very odd non-alcohol mix of barley and malts, nutty flavour, and lots of water. Weak palate. Points for trying, but this one just doesn’t work.

Botella. hazy amber brown colour with a lively dark beige bubbly head. Sweet caramel nutty malty aroma. Lively mouthfeel, like the beer is mixed with Ramlösa sparkling mineral water. Sweet ,chestnutty caramel, well toasty malty, light sourish flavour. Sweet caramel nutty,lightly bitter, bit sourish finish. Rather a bit too sweet with a light infection.
