Dark orange with white foam. Hop and malt aroma. More malt than I expected. Some sweetness. I don’t get any definable hops. Well balanced flavor. Malt, hops, some caramel, orange peel with a lingering bitter finish.

Aromas of hops, fat hop fruit, some hop acidity, herbs, grapes, peach, citrus, yeast, hint of wild yeast, light vinous and some very light funk. Flavours of earthy hops, bitters, fruits, herbs, chalk, yeast, wood, herbs and light creamy tone. Aftertaste is a mix of earthy tones, hops, bitters, herbs, grass and earthy hops. Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, more than medium bodied.

Af krana á Skúla. Flottur ilmur af þessum en poppar ekkert sérstaklega, situr flötum beinum. Vel beiskur án þess að skrapa góminn. Barinn tæmdist uppí rútu skömmu eftir að ég settist niður. Það var ekki eitthvað sem ég sagði.

Botella 500 ml. Color ambar muy oscuro, turbio. Espuma blanca jabonosa, con mucho poso de lupulo al final, marca de la cas. De buena formacion y persistencia. Pino, uva, melocotón, resina, masa de pan, malta, pienso, madera verde, bizcocho. En boca los mismos matices donde destacan mas los maltosos y resinados y menos los frutales. Algo de levadura tb. Dulzura y amargor en buen equlibrio.Textura aceitosa densa, cremosa, carbonatacion baja. Final amargo resinado, algo frutal maltoso, en la misma linea q el sabor en boca. Me mola.
