2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle. Bottle labelled as ’Half n’ Half’. No mention of ’Bernstein’. Dark copper colour. Clear. Medium-sized off-white head. Light, slightly roasted grainy flavour. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Some distant clean hop notes. Grainy husk flavours at first with a little chocolate and a smooth finish. Surprisingly little flavour outside a little caramelly sweetness and the husky astringency. Finishes dry grainy and with some hop bitterness.
