Aroma: A sweet smell, mixed with raisins, bread and some yeast.k0mpsa (3060) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2012
Appearance: Brown, dark orange liquid, much foam that settles quickly, no noticeable lacing.
Taste: Taste is dominated with sweet aromas, a hint of alkohol and rather flat.
Palate: Too low carbonation.
Overall: I’m surprised by the flatness and suspect that there might be some wrong with this batch (or bottle).
