3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From old notes. 500ml bottle from Costco.
Pours a slightly hazy light amber, finger of white head, bubbly. Smells nice, tastes good. A malty feel with some nice piney hop notes coming through. A little floral or tropical toward the finish, gentle bitterness. Just a bit aqueous and light-bodied over a whole bottle, needed a little more punch with both malt and hop body.

A slightly orange beer, a head is small and almost white. Aroma has biscuits, some caramell, citrusfruits and wood. Taste has wood and biscuits, the bitterness is quite mild but still it’s drying enough the mouth. Quite light bodied, easy to drink. Wooden vision, nevertheless, quite fresh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Dark orange (not amber) colour with decent head. Smell has hops. Taste has some malts but mainly hops with a bittering end. I found this more like a English pale ale with European bittering hops. Nice in its own way.
