3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is big orchard fruits, jam, dried wood and light grass. The taste is very fruity, plenty of jam and malty toffee. Not particular hop-dominant. Still, a smooth drinker that’s decently flavorful. OK.

Light brown, quite clear, beige head. Dough, brown sugar, twigs, resin. Light sweet and quite nice. Full enough body and both classic yet with full modern hop taste. A sipper bit I like it. (On tap at Borefts 2012)
