2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color is dark amber. The head is one finger thick, but dies after a while.
The aroma is malty with notes of fruit. Nothing particular overwhelming.
The taste is very average; mostly of malt, light fruity, a bit bready, pretty average and not so overwhelming. A standard-lager like unfortunately.
The mouthfeel is slightly better than average, quite filling but not that great.
It’s an easy beer too drink, but quite pointless.

Clear red-brown color and quickly fading head. Sweet malty caramell aroma. Pretty nice sweet flavor but too simple to get any credits.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Dark copper colour. Medium-sized off-white fine-laced head. Delicious sweet caramel aroma. Aroma is almost peppery. Dry powdery rich malty aroma. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, but the powdery sensation continues there as well. Carbonation is perfect, as it makes the beer feel balanced. Not really that bitter, but there are definitely distinct hops in there. Great session beer.
