2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, a gift. Dark amber, sparkling, clean and clear, small white head. Aroma is malty, a touch of metal and sick, slightly floral. Body is quite light, very foamy, low-ish carbonation, tacky. Taste is watery, some sweet malt, slightly tangy, soft bitterness. Maybe even the softest brett character. Insipid, but not as bad as I was expecting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I did not really taste the difference at all. Bit straw, some hops and few moments of caramel combined with a decent bitter ending and a bit of spruce in the finish. Not bad but not really classy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l clear bottle @ Bayswater Hotel Room. This is a clear light wood watered down brown looking one with a small faint beige sidesticking and islandy top. On the nose this gives me a good amount of caramel and nuts. Roasted nuts? Have to think about that for a while, but it is something super nutty going on here. Could it be snickers peanuts? Think so. Actually the aroma Is no tall that bad. It has thin and really watery feeling in the out with a just below average carbonation level. It doesn’t taste as skunky or bad as I was fearing. Light toffee caramel, more peanuts, some grassy things and a little bit of wood. Surprising, not directly good but not horrible either. 08.11.2013
