1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
(Sample at Papsø’s) Pours a clear dark brown with little, off-white head. Aroma is very faint and almost undetectable - woody? Thin-bodied, watery texture, soft carbonation and a short, flat finish. Taste is cardboard or not much of anything - neither sweet nor bitter - nor sour for that matter. I guess it’s not my kind of beer style.
