2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden colour with an off-white head of foam. Good malt presence. Fruity, sweet and lightly spiced. Aroma mirrors taste. However, the carbonation and heavy metallic tone to it ruin this ale somewhat. It’s also a little on the sour-dry side. Not really refreshing.
Tasted 10/1/2017. Bottle, People’s Park Complex, Chinatown, Singapore; $S7.50. BB 15 DEC 2017. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger bright white foamy head that diminished slowly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation moderate (high for Asian beers), slow and fine. Aroma is of slight malt and sweet honey; alcohol well hidden. Taste is quite sweet with hints of honey and alcohol burn; alcohol burn increases as it warms and over-powers everything. Light to medium body. Smooth with an alcohol burn on the finish. Not nice. Werckmeister (3184) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 11, 2017
