3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 11 Jan 2014) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots, citrus and toast. Malty, roasted taste with notes of apricots, orange peel, crisp-bread and a citric, slightly toasty bitterness in the finish. Slightly edgy malt profile. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Not overly complex, but quite well made IPA. Nice one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, corn syrup), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Smells ok, if kinda ordinary and a bit syrupy. That syrup-like aroma unsurprisingly portends the mouth experience; it’s quite syrupy-sweet and sticky. Not much fun to drink. Pretty sour too. Meh.
