3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly misty golden body with good firm off white head. Raspberry, candy malts, woody and nuts. Not too expressive really. Fairly bitter for the style, but not from hop bit rather from spice it almost seem. Maybe I mistake it for roughness. Not refined, certainly, and although not without flavour it can’t surprise or convince me. Herbal ending. Strange, different from my expectations. Medicinal. Not so bad.
