3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half, keg, chilled down too far at Charlie’s Bar. Clear amber coloured body. Low head lacing the glass as it goes down. Fruity aroma with a punch of oranges. Sappy taste of fruity hops added by citrus shells and offset by caramel sweetness. Semi dry bitter tail. Crispy in the mouth. Refreshing and flavoursome (Copenhagen, 23.03.2013).
