2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, tart and malty, bordering cereals, with some candy-like notes popping out now and again. Hops in the background. Floral and vinegar notes as it warms. Stingy. Hops become more outspoken as it warms. Bitter flavour. A strong milky note initially, but it tones down as it warms. Hops. A bit metallic. Not very well-balanced. Bitter malty finish. Candy-like hop notes. Lingering grassy notes. A slightly cloying sweetness. A so-so beer. Could be better balanced in both aroma and flavour. 19-06-09.
