2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A pleasant and clean strong lager. No off flavours, even when warming up - though it did become a little grainy, though not in an ugly way - just adding a bit of character. Soft, fragrant hops enhanced the malt. Good firm body without becoming sticky. Alcohol was warm and pleasant without being aggressive. Mineral notes mixed with floral qualities. An attractive and enjoyable strong lager. Surprising.
