3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L clear bottle, bought @Ølhandleriet, Oslo. A shiny blond fingerthick head, upon a lightly hazed light amber colored body. Nice aroma of nutty malts, toffee, hay, and something fruity reminscent of a black currants. Healthy body considering the low abv. Slick in the mouth. Taste is less outspoken. Mild sourish-sweet malt body. Stale earthy hops the back, along with a fine berry-like fruitiness. Not bad at all, I’d love to try this one from a well kept cask.

Amber. Nose has citrus, fresh hops, caramel, toffee. Body is medium, but a tad watery, light on the palate. Caramel, malts. Typical toffee/caramel- kentish ale, but with a good dose of hops. After the hops have died off on the nose, it becomes a bit murky.
