3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small yellow head, clear red-chestnut beer. Caramel and sweet-fruity hops, rainwater, rosewater. Fruitiness, bitterness and quite some sweet; but cancelling each other more or less out. Caramel, banana, wood, coloured malts. Almost fizzy carbonation, quite slck, hopoil influenced. Rather well-bodied for 6.1% . Misses a bit of spark. Still in the ’style’ amber ale, it stands its own.

Mouthfeel is soft, round, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, tangerines, moist grass, pine needles, sichuan pepper and lemon zest.
