3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
25cl bottle into a snifter at Glenfiddich warehouse #68 Stockholm.
The beer pours a super light brown, totally clear with hints of amber, just looks watery and unappealing. Total lack of head, no lacing...Aroma smells like a typical bw but with too much alcohol. Caramel, alcohol, light hop finish...The taste is super light, that’s the first thing, annoyingly so and distracting. Alcohol shows through too much, light caramel and a touch of hops...Feel is bad as we mentioned, however this is super easy to drink at 9.1%.
Ok and easy to drink bw but nothing to search out for. If you’re in Sweden at a local place worth a shot.
