2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown with almost no head. Aroma is slight syrup, nuts, slight caramel. Nothing much. Taste is slightly phenolic syrupy sweetness, a little bitterness, perfume/flower stuff. Quite a lot of carbonation, lots of resin/syrup bittersweetness in the finish. A little too phenolic syrupy for drinkability. Medium enjoyment here.
