500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. Mostly diminishing pearl white head. Fair lacing. Clear amber coloured body. Smell of caramel, earth and bread. Herbal hops together with brown malts to the taste, disturbing hints of vegetables lurking behind. Mild bitter endnotes. Soft on the swallow. Medium to thin bodied. So and so (Bokhuset with Finn and djoeye, Tromsř 10.09.2014).
