3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg, on April 20, 2012
Hazy to more cloudy oranga color, big lasting yellow head. Hoppy, bitter, citrus, sweet, sticky, alcohol taste. Smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Alcohol aftertaste. Fruity, white pepper, citrus, hoppy, cheese scent. Too evident alcohol, not very balanced. I’d want more malt character. Not bad at all, but not what I want for myself.
