3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Expensive, big bottle shared with Arild and Finn H. at The Rake, London Bridge. Slightly unclear, sunset coloured body. Decent off-white head. Floral hoppy to the nose. Tangerine taste supported by hints of dark spices and quite heavily, dry hopped ending. Well integrated alcohol. Rather sweet textured, but still pleasant to drink (01.08.2009).
