3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Bishops Arms, Malmö. Clear, warm golden pour. Nice aroma of toast, caramel and hops. Taste has a bit of nuttiness together with butter, plum, citrus and resin. A generous amount of hops gives it balance and a bit dry and bitter finish. Body is too light for my taste but otherwise an ok IPA. A bit forgetable though.
