3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at HaandBryggeriet, Beer Festival, Drammen. Deep orange to amber colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate aroma of fruity hops, hints of flowers and honey. The flavour is first sweet malts, then distinct hops with fruity notes and a bitter finish. Decent beer, but a bit too much sweetness overall.
