3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Aroma: embarrassed to say that very first impression is that it smells like Steinlager (but costs four times as much), after tasting there is more to enjoy about it - malt syrup I had as a child, toffee, band aid (I cant explain why that is a pleasant aroma to me, it just is), dough yeast, dry grass, delicate almost mouldy tangerine, pine. Appearance: nice clear warm amber hue with large off-white fluffy sea-foam diminishing head and foamy lacing. Taste: mild sweetness which is quickly overtaken by moderate bitterness with a long duration, a touch of sourness. Palate: light medium body, smooth lightly creamy texture, tingly carbonation, long dry slightly astringent finish. Overall: nice enough, the "generous addition of hops" as described on the label must have been left out of batch 1243 :). Different to most IPA’s I have had.
