3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Borefts ’13.
Clear pale orange golen colour on the boy, tall off white head with very good retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Weird aroma of smoked.. something herb-like. I see on the description is brewed with moosegrass but I don’t have any idea how that smells or how it does even look like. It’s not very appealing but as the time passes it seems to grow on me.
Taste is something similar, only a little bit weaker. Whatever that moosegrass is, it offers a mild bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, low carbonation.
Overall an interesting beer.

Draught. Slightly hazy pale golden in color with thin white head. Some fruity notes in aroma, perhaps something you could pick in a forrest in autumn perhaps. Very crisp and refreshing. Pleasant aftertaste with some fruitness and earthiness.

@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.
