3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 2013 and 2014 editions. About the same taste. Ambassadörporter is nice and welldone porter - but the foam disappear to quick - pitty.
Very easy to drink and the water is of good quality. The Qvänum edition would be interesting to follow in the future, too.
