2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. It pours golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is grainy, dough, toasty, light spice and a touch of sweetness. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony, soapy, toasty, peppery, metallic notes, wood and grain with a lingering dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit soapy. So-so. I prefer the cask version.
