3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 33cl bottle, thanks to Erlangernick, golden with a lacing head, malty peppery nose, dry and crisp, almost acrid bitter edge, more like a strong dry Pilsner than a Hellerbock. Faint floral notes, a herbal finish, and some warming alcohol, otherwise no great depth or complexity. Re-rate: now 6 months past its best-before, a bit of age seems to have smoothed things out nicely - the herbal edge is still there, but it’s more honeyed overall and the bitterness is more balanced. Nice stuff.
