3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark copper color with a large head. Aroma is nutty and a bit malty, some subtle hoppy notes appear as well as some dry fruity notes, distant berries also. Flavor is a bit watery and thin, some malts, fruits and faint hops, hay and caramel follow. Medium carbonation, dry nutty palate. Clean but a bit boring and not really my cup of tea.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown, yellowish head; hoppy, slightly woody aroma; this has a pleasant hedgerow fruit character coupled with some earthy hops; kind of autumnal; decent character for a lower strength beer.
