3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark reddish/brown with an inch of off white foam.
Smell is of earthy hops, grain, some sweet malty notes.
Semi sweet, semi hoppy, very little grain in the taste. Delicious and only 4.5% abv. Even the mouthfeel is nice.
Excellent Dark Lager.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Too sweet for my taste. Sweet dominate the beer, no room for other components. It’s a light beer, probably much more preferred by ladies.
