2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml clear bottle from Waitrose. Clear, bubbly, fairly deep amber with an average quick-diminishing frothy-fizzy beige head. Grainy/grassy aroma, a little sour and skunky. Fairly "meh" grain and stale grass taste, enlivened a bit by an odd tart grapeskin character that actually improves it quite a bit - light body, solid carbonation, with a quick, somewhat dry grain/grassy-bitter finish. A bit thin,.

Incredibly drinkable and balanced. Not exceptional in any respect but the hop character is nice

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Small head disappeared instantly. Nice caramel colour but clearly flat and unappetising in appearance. There was little of interest in the aroma or taste, while not unpleasant, it was not somehting I would repeat if there were other options.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
The beer in glass is opper-colored with lat head, which will disappear very quickly. The smell is nice and spicy bitterhoppy. Starts good hoppy, little tart or bitter, very spicy, but unfortunately somewhat watery. The middle part and the finish part gets even something more hoppy, the bitter taste comes through well. Not bad, not good!
