look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

A: The color is brown with quite some bubbles in the liquid. The brown head is a bit uneven and leaves faint lacings.

S: Roasted rahter dry dark malt, a bit bready. Some honey and som hoppy flowery notes. But overall rather mild in smell.

T: Strong bitterness from the hops together with the roasted dark, semi-sweet malt. Some dark dried fruits in the back, but mild.

M: Aftertaste is long and bitter, while carbonation is on the richer side. The body is thin.

O: Well, the weakest part in this beer is the low ABV, which brings the thin body and rather watery feel.

The colour is amber-copper (30 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and yellowish. No lacing occurs.

The smell is mild and malty. Some flowery bitter notes. Biscuits, honey and caramel.

The taste is a bit dry. Notes of red/brown malts: Biscuits, toffee, dried apricots, plums. Medium to light body. The bitter flavours grows in the aftertaste, bringing some metallic notes to the front. Some of the dried fruit notes reminds me of rhubarb and plum jam. The finish is fruity with hay and dry mineral notes of chalk.

The carbonation is strong, although the large bubbles are short lived. The liquid is light to medium, it becomes almost astringent in the finish.

It reminds me of the bitters of Shepherd Neame at the same strength. But it is not as good as this one got an odd mouthfeel.
