3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Borefts 2013. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is rich malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a nutty hoppy bitter crisp sharp palate. I didn’t dislike this beer but it’s a little metallic too and not too dissimilar to some other beers that have a similar style and have been marked down because of the brewer. Yes, it’s Narke and they are very very good, but this is nothing special.

Draught at Borefts, 2013. Oily blonde color, herbal, lemon, soap nose. Creamy lemon flavor with soap and herbs. Intersting herbal character, decently bitter finish. A bit medicinal, but nice drinking. Oily body.

@Borefts. They called it a forest beer, a fitting description. It tastes like it’s made with herbs and grasses from the woods. Nice, but a bit flat.
