3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,355l bottle at home. some number that says 815 which I would assume means bottling. smells of caramel, pines, bit sweetish, light grass and herbs, flowery,light nuts. good smell bit on the sweet side. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes sweet at first, then rather bitter, citric notes, herbs, light pines, candy notes, some stale hops. finishes rather light with notes with medium bitterness and citric notes, herbs and light pines. okish, taste not too great, maybe also an issue of freshness, bit watery / stale taste.
