3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Piney hops and toasted wood allusions summon quite the forest, all the way to a minty fresh bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the shiny amber haze.
-The soft richness of the mouthfeel is one of the beer’s best features.
-Hops also share oranges and flowers.
-It’s a shame oxidation seems to be setting in even though there are 9 months left before the best before date, according to the label.
-This must be excellent fresh, on tap.

Slightly hazy amber beer with a thick, beige head. Grassy, citrusy, yeasty aroma. Flavour is quite complex. The citrus is there still, there’s a nice earthy malt quality to it, some bitter hop, a touch of spice and a nice, airy hoppy backtaste. Good hearty body as well, even when it’s quite chilled as mine was. Really nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red malts, bready, berries, fresh and dank hops, modern. Mixed bag but it works for me, something I would brew myself. Full enough body, bit rough around the edges. Decent bitterness. Lots of cereals and full body for the abv. Again, totally something I would brew myself and unexpectedly so I dig it. (33cl bottle from Saveur Biečre)
