3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty bread aroma with weak yeast notes. Taste is dominated by continental hop making this beer very close to a good pilsner a bit. Aftertaste is awesome - herbs, grass, very elegant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l, bottled on 10/11/14 (really fresh!). Crystal clear, dark reddish brown. Thick and creamy, off-white, stable head. Sweetish fruity aroma of caramel, candy sugar, raisins and prunes. It is intense and harmonic. Taste is a bit weaker. Only slightly sweet with hints of caramel, roasted malts and grains. Crisp, medium bitter finish. Medium-bodied, average carbonation. Delicious beer but the aroma promised a bit more. Nevertheless easy to drink.
