3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer producing a two finger, off-white head. Fruity nose with a nice maltyness and some caramel. The flavor has a nice bitterness, citrusy, a touch of sourness and some malty sweetness, leading to a malty but mostly bitter finish. Medium, maybe a bit sticky mouthfeel. A nice and balanced beer that could do well as a quencher in the summer time too. 090724
