2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @Godec pub, Ljubljana, ?i?ka. Poura amber, slightly brown woth a very nice and firm, full whiye head. Aroma is somewhat faint, slightly hoppy, and some citrus notes. Taste is very mellow, flat, but very fresh. The carbonation only enhancess the fresh taste. Quite good for a hot, sunny day.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had two overly cold bottles in a row shortly after some kimchi. Couldn’t smell much. Head dissipated immediately. Tasted like some mix of baked and predominantly fresh apples. Tangible carbonation. Felt very refreshing in given circumstances. Will revisit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at Street Brews Café St Julian’s Malta. Served cold in a 1/2 glass, probably too cold for the style. Dark brown, with an off-white head that died pretty quickly. A bit of malt aroma escaped the big freeze, and I could discern a pretty decent fruit and nut flavour. Needs a re-rate at a slightly higher temperature. (Would have given it time to warm, but was on a deadline.)
