2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Amber, cloudy, small and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and faint - light smokiness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint smokiness and with faint sourness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and smokiness with faint - light sourness. OK aroma but flavor/finish has more caramel than smokiness with weird notes of sourness. Really nothing special.
