(Istak Malt (Natural)) Bottle 325 ml, served into a shaker. Non alcoholic, but new country!
Deep amber colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small and thin white head on top, collapsing fast.
Very malty and sweet aroma, prunes, syrup, some stewed fruits.
Taste is sweet and mostly constists of malts. Sugar, syrup, some fruity notes.
Thin body, carbonation on the low side.
For what it is I expected it to be more offensive but it could be worse.

Trade with Douberd. Pours a clear amber brown color, topped with a small white head. Quite smelly malty aroma, some resin preence as well. Taste is sweet and watery, and definitely not nice or beer. At least it’s a new country. vipinvelp (4510) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
