2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a small white head which doesn’t last long. Aroma is malty, lightly roasted - label claims plum and vanilla - not sure I can detect any of that but there is some sweetness, perhaps that’s what it is. Flavour is malty, caramel, lightly spiced, subtle fruitiness. Nice but a bit underwhelming overall.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Vinyl, Zagreb. 25 effin’ kunas for this... Yeah, dull, clear amber body, not much head. Stale, diluted malty aroma nose, stale, very much diluted malty taste, unpleasant messy aftertaste. This is godawful and I cannot believe anyone would be so tasteless as to import this and market it as craft. Though, seriously, yeah, craft has its own awful beers, which the Croatian craft scene lacks, so guess this goes for that niche. If you like something that tastes 3 Euros less than it costs - go ahead. I, honestly, feel robbed. And I expected something at least, at the very least en par with the passable Worthington’s.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from a local store in Croydon. Rapidly declining beige head. Crystal clear amber coloured body. Mild caramel nose. Flavoured with caramel malts and offset by a smooth bitter twist towards the ending. Clean in the mouth. Decent (shared with Finn, hotel room 27.11.2015).

Flaske 500ml delt med Rune på rom 426 Premier Inn Croydon Town Center 27 Nov 11. Gyldenbrun. Lavt luftig skum med litt lacing. OK maltaroma. Smaken lett fruktig - men mest malt. Svakt syrlig etter hvert.
