2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby read with a big dissapearing head which desolved to a small film,some yeast in the glass, . Aroma is dry-ish with some hints of bread and raisins. Taste is mildly bitter and slightly sour. There is an underlying taste I cant quite destinguish. Medium palate. Strangely, this is the third bottle I´ve had of this and I feel like all tasted different. 2nd was quite good, loads of malt and character but this feels like there is something missing, like a slightly bitter vienna or something like that. I will rerate if I buy another bottle
