3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big offwhite shiny lasting head. Light amber body with lots of carbonation. Sweetish resiny malty aroma with notes of pine needles. Dry sweetish smoky roasty caramel malt taste with rubbery, chalky notes. Dry, roasty hoppy aftertaste. Clean, edgy mouthfeel. Grew on me as I drank. Quite good. (0.5l bottle at Tegner.)
