3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
.50 bottle. Light orange, hazy. Fruity nose. Citrus, rubarb, some tropicality. Gooseberries. A bit of caramel from the malts. And some cardboard, unfortunately. Body is a bit thinnish. Dry. But full of flavor though. Nice brew, nice apa. But with a bit of oxidation and yeast residue. Not super clean in other words, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Feels authentic, like a good home brew.
