4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A ’bitter’ smell with dark hedgerow fruit aroma and a black honeysuckle suggestion with a little excess resin. Clear gold with a sparse white head. Flavour is spicy grain, typical rye character shining through clearly beside a citrus accompaniment. Perfectly balanced flavour. Mouthfeel is oerfectly suited - thick but not too dense. A great piece of work,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home split with grumpy Sarah. Aroma is light caramel , spicy rye bread with some sweet berry and raisin cake. A little toast on the nose as well. Mostly clear orange, light amber coloured pour with a lasting thin cream white head. Flavour is perhaps past its best, but still pretty good. toast and caramel nutty malts, with berry, strawberry hop, with a little earthy note. Rye is nicely blanced and plays nicely with the rest of the beer. Palate is grainy cereal, moderate to high carbonation. Lingering nutty malts with berry hop. Nice clean ferment.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrescante, equilibrada, buen cuerpo, pero no pesada. Los cítricos no se los veo tanto, pero si el lúpulo que, pese a lo que pensaba sobresale por encima del centeno, presente pero no protagonista. Bastante rica. Va muy bien con comida asiática.
