3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not an overly complex brew, but a decent one. drawn on draft in Brussels. Poured a coppery golden color with a light head. Crisp mildly sweet maltiness zwith whitebread toastiness to it, tasting as if it had been drizzeled with honey. Very light grassy hops in the finish.

Draft in Finland. Creamy head, smooth going down, tasty but not overbearing. Note: had a bottle of the same in Ukraine. Tasted like two totally different beers. Go for the draft.

Draft. Copper in the glass with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is somewhat musty yet sweet with a large malt backing. The flavor finds caramel and honey with a hint of roast. Light in body.
