2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. It’s a clear, amber beer topped by a dense, fingerthick light beige head. Quite sparkling, and leaving lacings. It’s quite malty on the nose, caramel, bread and some faint coffee hints, as well as pine cones and some grass and citrus. There’s not much sweetness in the flavor, but it’s malt dominated anyway. Bread, caramel, pine cones and some citrus peel, and a decent bitterness. Medium body, a bit too carbonated for my likings. Some metallic hints show up in the else malty and lightly bitter finish. Not so very pale this one, too malty, but it goes down. 130830
