3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle (4.8% abv) @ Timo A. BBE 28.07.2014.
Pours dark hazy orange-brown color with a small head. Quite nice aroma, some ripe fruit notes, caramel, sugary notes and even some coffee. A bit watery palate, some fruity and moderately malty notes on flavor, grass also. A bit of disappointment on flavor but otherwise decent.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a dark cloudy amber colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, yogurt, bread and gooseberry bush. Flavour of toasted malts, strong yogurt notes, bready maltiness, harsh grains and grass. Light bodied. Not as fresh as it should be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the brewery. Top fermented, Altbier malt, extra hops. Nice Alt character, well balanced. A year maturing in the bottle has done no harm whatsoever. A harmonious beer.
