2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland. Pours a translucent amber with a thin white, bubbly head that disputes quickly to a small ring around the edge. Aroma, as others have said is juniper. UK drinkers will also understand that it smells like 1p fruit salad sweets, or perhaps even a refresher bar. Slight metallic hint and light roasted malts. Moderate to strong bitterness with moderate carbonation and a thin body. Nothing particularly special.
