2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber color with average big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and milk chocolate. Taste starts light sweet and turns to medium sweet at the finish. There are notes of caramel and milk chocolate in taste, too. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Too sweet for my taste and too weak on the body.

En mild sødlig øl, med meget mild humle. Næsten ingen kulsyre. God smag, dog ikke det store sus.
