3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks to Michael Rosenow who brought this home. Thin head over a cola-brown body. Slightly roasty malt smell with some brown sugar backing. The taste is fruity more than roasty, befitting an ale. Also some cider to the palate. Michael said he tastes coriander, but I don’t get much spice to it. A bit of tartness toward the end. Turns out nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from gotmos, hauled this all the way back from the homeland. It pours with a black body and a ghost white head. Quickly the head fades. The aroma is dusty dry dark cracker with light cracker. Taste is less corn with a more malt sweetness. This takes away from the dryness in the aroma, it also finishes a bit watery. A light easy drinking beer with just a bit of corn, so in general good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - much thanks to KerenMK for the new country tick! Pours clear dark brown to black with a ruby tint, medium off-white head that slowly disspates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malt, caramel, grass, and perhaps a bit of metal. Flavor is the same, initially smoky and a bit salty, although the smokyness fades with time. Medium sweet with a light grassy/metallic bitterness. Medium body. Interesting and certainly drinkable.
