2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - there’s lots in there, but they’re dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, don’t mix well with the hop character... not something I’d get excited about.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. It’s quite nutty, and very floral. I don’t get the nutty, but that’s how I’m interpreting it. There’s a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. I’d say it’s better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.
