3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned, 500ml. Golden beer with white bubbly head. The beerhas a sharpish, pine needle aroma and taste but also a treacley note too. Quite complex in its impact, but the flavours work well together. Lasting and bitter throughout the beer, quite an enjoyable and interesting beer.
