3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red-brown with notes of caramel, malt, fennel and light notes of herbs and/or vegetables. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar, fennel and some spice. IMO the herb/vegetable notes disturb the overall impression in this otherwise nice beer.
