3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. Purchased in coop. Appearance: It pours a beautiful clear amber beer with a tall, nicely remaining lacing creamy light beige head. Good lacework. Aroma: Caramel, perhaps some diacetyl, earthy and citrusy hops, light orange, slight juniper notes. Taste and palate: Medium bodied. Subdued bitterness. Sweetish. Pleasant malt back. Gentle carbonation. Orange, juniper and cloves showing up. Medium bodied. Dryish finish which is reminiscent of hops which are high ond alpha acids and caramel. Overall impression: A nice take on the style.
