3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. It’s a lightly unclear, amber colored beer tpoped by a small, dense, beige head. Sweetish and faintly meaty aroma with a forest-ish hint. Both aroma and flavor a bit dull I think, but there’s sure some forest present. The flavor has a caramel maltyness in the in back, and a forest touch up front, but as mentioned, rather boring. Full body, soft and smooth on the palate. Some bitterness in the finish. Boring, but sure drinkable, and it deserves the name. 120504
