3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottles in Victory sampler 2013 and poured in What’s Brewing workshop 3 TÜ, 2015. Citrus caramel bonbon meets friendly herbal leaf resins in taste and mouthfeel. Slight Simcoe/Centennial dankness, pungency when older. Could be more expressive in aroma, although that might be the trade routes speaking.

Direi decisamente un bel colore, e anche un bel naso che lasciano presagire molto bene. Ma poi in bocca non mi convince molto, un pò troppo sbilanciata.

Pours golden with creamy lasting head. Aroma is beautifully sweet and in-your-face hoppy. Beautiful citrus nose with spices lingering afterwards. Flavour is very sweet caramel with piercing hop bitterness. Beautifully balanced. Perfect for quaffing or sipping. Malt flavours come through prominently if you let it warm a little to about 10 Celsius.

On tap at "na 7.schode", Zilina. Amber clear with medium persistent white head. Sweet aroma of resin, spruce, caramel, toasty, biscuits and some red fruit. Taste is moderate bitter, light sweet with notes of spruce and pine, biscuity. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Very drinkable, I won’t say it’s 6.7% ABV.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost amber with a thick tan head. Aroma is more bread and cereal than hops. Surprisingly complex. Starts bitter and stays bitter with serious grapefruit and dank hops, but then a soft, almost tropical fruit finish that comes in after the dankness. It’s a tad too bitter overall for me, but impressive nonetheless.
