3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small bubbly and sidesticking off-white head. Smells hoppy and a bit fruity, almost pungent hoppy, but not in a directly bad way either. Tomatoes and nettles. Interesting. Quite hoppy, yet extremely balanced! Did not expect this. Comfortably carbonated with a soft slick mouthfeel. Fruity melon and some nice citrus. Soft dry and slick finish. Not bad at all. 22.08.2012
