3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a large light brown rocky head that mostly diminishes. Lacing is good. Body is clar, sparkling with red brown hue. Aroma contains roasted malts, lemon hops, light dough from yeasts, grape and raisin, brown sugar, licorice and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic with lemon or citrus from hops, to be quickly followed by moderate sweetnes and a roasted taste from burnt malts and fruits like raisin and grape. Finish is dry and light bitter, a bit astringent and there's some taste of alcohol, which is quite well hidden. Palate is light to medium, a bit watery in texture and with lively carbonation. A little less sweetness would make it more balanced. Still, very good.
