3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is biscuit, citrus hop, light malt. The flavour is medium bitter light sweet with a malt citrus hop light bitter sweet palate and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I’m going to have to have to buck the trend with this one and say that I really liked this. Lots of chewy fruit combined with some hops and a little malt. Not a bitter really, more like a golden ale.
