3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Shady golden with a medium white head. Bready malt aroma with some tropical fruits, and a touch of coconut vanilla which made me think there was some barrel aging going on here. Medium bodied with soft texture. Dry and well balanced with low to medium bitterness. Quite good.
