3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark coppery beer with a blond and quite weak head. The nose is surprisingly, aromatic and citrucy, that unfortunately lightening after the beginning, bready malts, wood, some caramell and fruits. Taste of malts and some wood, hint of lemon, nice bitterness, that is almost medium, thus the taste is quite dry, good. Quite long, herbal-grassy end. Quite nice Oktoberfest -beer, some aromatic nuancees gives the more interest, also succesfully and brisk hoppyness.
