3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dusted gold with a stable rocky collar. Lush juicy blackcurrant Fruit Salad chew, stewed leafy hop mango and passion fruit aroma. All that beyond with bright floral and tropical hop over honeyed pine, grapefruit and chaffy monkey nut. Warming honey and grapefruit finish. Very good. Like an amped up English GA.
