3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle best by April 2016, guessing 4 months old. First impression is moldy cork / rubber. Faint touches of grassy / floral noble hops hidden behind the wall of rubber. Sharp carbonic acid, medium-light body, dry, pasty / starchy, moderately bitter, a little paper-y. Gripping acidity leading to a slightly astringent finish. Dry finish with off-notes of notebook paper. Odd stuff, almost comes together as another good low gravity hoppy golden ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes @ weekly tasting. Hazy yellow color, average to medium sized white head. Aroma is not really nice: a bit buttery, malty and dusty. Taste malts, moderately bitter, lightly grains. Pretty bitter finish. Aroma is off imo, but if you like bitter beers like me it’s not bad.
