2.28/5  rDev -33.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured a 500-ml bottle into a beer stein.

Appearance - nice amber colour with a decent surface head.

Smell - caramel and nut aromas. Barley malt below the main scent.

Taste - not so fond of this one. It starts out okay with a solid English Ale taste, with good malt flavours. But then this overwhelming evergreen berry / pine needle taste comes invading. Not my cup of tea.

Mouthfeel - the pine needle invasion bothers me, not pleasant.

Drinkability - weak. One is enough. One is enough for a long time.

Serving type: bottle
