2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An amber beer, clear as can be, and topped by a small and rapidly disappearing off-white head. Toffee, some dms and a hint of dried fruits in the aroma. Too weak. Not very pronounced flavor either, caramel and hay doing most of the job. Medium body with too much carbonation, quite dry. The finish has a decent bitterness to balance the caramel. Boring, but sure drinkable. 100423
