3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Oljenkorsi, BBE 31.12.2013
Aroma is fruity with hops and some harsh notes of bush leaves. Also hints of caramel and biscuits. Flavour is bitter in a harsh way with bush leaves, some hops, yeasty notes, caramel and mint. Strong herbal notes at the end of the glass. Just too messy and too much harsh bitterness, also feels quite light for this ABV.
