2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Beautiful color, dark amber with red reflex, but small head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, light feet. Lean mouthfeel, roasted malt flavor, too dry and too ashy for me. Correct bitterness. Disturbing character of burnt malts in the end.
As said, too ashy.
