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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle screen-printed 33 cl from GGF Getränke in Aarau (CH).
Orange color, average off-white foam collar, a little lacing. Malted aromas, floral sweetness, citric touches. We find then a slight bitterness, notes of yeast and almond. Final short precooked bread and hop. Nothing very extraordinary in all this.
