2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
There is some nice peach in the background somewhere but overall fairly standard fare - slightly sweet malt balanced with good bitterness. Not bad. A bit muddy and bready and smell is unremarkable but overall it is drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
65 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 03/2013
Aroma is rather fruity with lots of apricot. Flavour has apricot, hay, some English hops and grainy tones. Feels dry. Nice, but the flavour is a bit short. Also the growing feeling of English hops disturb me a bit here.
