2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml standard stubby Belgian brown glass bottle. Fairly dry Belgian blonde. Dry and thin. Chalky. Tastes like it was brewed at a moderate temperature for a long time, so it inclines toward a flavourless and characterless and dry and thin lager. The orange peel and anise have been added to put in some of the flavours you would get from a higher and faster fermentation. This is an indifferent beer.
