3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. Bottled on 21.04.14 AROMA: citrusy and passion fruit like hop notes, mixed with floral and pine aromas. faint sweet malt background. APPEARANCE: amber color with big white head and good retention. very hazy. TASTE: restrained hop flavours (some fruitiness) with high bitterness that lingers into a medium-dry finish. faint malt background giving a balance towards the hops and bitterness. PALATE: light body with high carbonation. OVERALL: a beer with a good aroma impression but with a flat hop flavours profile and body more on the light side.

Bottle at home from Bottledog. Aroma is subdues, lemon citrus hop, some neopoletean ice cream, strawberry and hop leaf. Golden colour, with a light haze and lasting white head with some big bubbles. Flavour is fairly straightforward, clean direct base malt, some biscuit. Hops are lightly citrus, orange peel and lighlty spiced. Very well balanced and drinkable. Firm clean bitterness rounds it out, some earthy hay lingers. Medium palate, touch of sweetness and moderate carbonation. Solid.
