2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Clear coppery beer with a medium-sized creamy head. The aroma is slightly malty, it has some caramelly sweetness and faint fruitness. The flavor is bland, slightly malty and dryish. A bit unfresh finish. The palate is thin and watery. Also a bit too carbonated. Very simple, bland and dull beer.
