3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge thanks to Ogglethorp for sharing one of my white whales at the last C-bus tasting! Golden pour--really striking look to this beer. No head. Aroma is muted with some sweetness and light apple coming through, along with some heat. The taste is incredibly hot, with some light caramel coming through, but mostly alcohol. The flavor is decent, but nothing complex at all. Definitely a let down from the hype.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Via trade with JaisPoAn. The aroma is vegetable, sweet, caramel, boozy. The appearance is a deep yet translucent amber, thin white head. The flavor is sweet, caramel, candi, slight vegetable. The finish is sweet, sticky, pine. Thick in body. The aroma is boring, the flavor is decent, the finish is good, the mouthfeel is excellent. Considering this is a long time want, I’m a tad disappointed, but it’s stil a cool beer, and I’m glad I got to try it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Leicht alkoholischer Antrunk, passende Karbonisierung. Minimaler Hopfen, stärker ist das helle Malz, das aber vergleichsweise wenig süß ist. Süffig, spritzig, alkoholischer Nachgeschmack mit würzigem Malz. /11/11/12/12/12
