2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled, BBE 23.6.2007) Clear, deep golden with a large, foamy head. Dull, slightly metallic and cardboardy aroma with some past-its-prime grassy hoppiness and butter. Buttery-malty, lightly metallic flavor with honey and actually some hop bitterness present all the way. Some cardboard, probably since it’s past its BBE. Almost medium-bodied, neutral, pretty dull palate with foamy but not that high carbonation. A surprisingly malty brew with at least some flavors - even if they’re not that pleasant. Seriously, this is not that bad at all.
