3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A very strange no-style golden beer. No short description possible. Fun to try once
How: Tap at Akkurat, Stockholm
The look: Almost clear bright shinning golden body body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is puzzling in the way, after smelling if for a few minutes all I could come up with is it like smelling a typical citrusy IPA and jasmine flowers over a typical Chinese restaurant orange beef dish. I know if sounds weird, but it did smell weird. Taste has honeyed malts, jasmine flowers, mangos, apricots, vegetal notes (celery?), coriander and nutmeg-ish spiciness, oranges. Mild bitterness with a spicy after-taste. Also quite a bit of residual sugars in the after-taste. Oh well, this was a strange beer for sure. Not something I would like to drink on a regular basis, but it is something I am happy to have tried once, and also I get another rating, this is my rating #5200, yeah! Not sure if I spend too much time rating beers, but I am now closer to 10,000 ratings than I am to my family.
