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.
