2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colored with medium sized yellow head. Fruity, bready and cardboardy aroma with somehow floral hops. Medium bodied, soft palated. Flavor is pretty much the same: bread and cardboard, some lemony fruits too. Aftertaste is lemony still. Well, nothing wrong, but nothing special.

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge and off-white head. Mild earthy and vague breadish malt aroma. Mild sweetness, vague metallic note. A more fruity flavour appears after the initial impression, lasting throughout. Smooth yet with a decent bitterness and light cornish note.
