2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, Pivovarsky Klub. Serious body, alcohol and bitterness nudging towards Tripel territory. Soapy citrus with stale papery backtaste. A late flourish of biscuit. Long malty afters, faint glow, wood and vomit in aroma. Intense peaty/whiskeyish notes developing as it warms..not quite as bad as it sounds.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sharp, spicy, green hops linger over the strong fruity esters in the nose. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a densely packed, fine bubbled white head that recedes very slowly to cover. Hop bitterness is sharp up front, followed by mellow round fruitiness and grassy hop flavours notable especially in the aftertaste. Alcohol is occasionally apparent. There’s an underlying cloying sweetness that while masked by the bitterness is continually present in the aftertaste that I don’t find enjoyable. Medium light body has very strong, pointy carbonation that prickles the tongue and cheeks. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Sep-07),

Bottled@Hostina, Helsinki (rating #4000). Amberish orange colour, white head. Aroma is alcohol and some malts and hops. Quite sweet with some bready hints also. Flavour is very much the same, with the breadyness toned down. As it gets warmer a lot of fruity notes become present.
