2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
19th September 2013
The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Thanks to Bruce. Cloudy pale gold beer with a small white head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Sourish and somewhat raw tasting pale malt. Whisper of insipid floral orange - lemon. Light dry finish. Swiss beers continue to be far more misses than hits. Very much meh!

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared by Dogbrick at the Eurostash III tasting on 1/12/12. Clear light yellow pour with a thick white head. Funky and dingy nose with malt and a bit of hop. Thin flavor that’s somewhat malty with slight hops and has an odd funk to it. Kinda smells and tastes dirty.
