4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy dark amber color with almost no head. The aroma is sweet and nutty, maybe a bit buttery. Very sweet flavor, almost like a Thomas Hardy, with good malt and toffee flavor; there is an interesting pineapple freshness; in the final, some sweet nuts, alcohol, caramel; correct bitterness.
Very good, 70% classic British, 30% zesty American.
