3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This Svetly shares the classic honeyed malts and mildly peppery hop notes most traditional examples of the style possess.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam decorates the pale golden.
-Malts also take on biscuity, cracker-like angles.
-Mouthfeel is silky and oily.
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout.
