Retired (no longer brewed)
Notes: A deep aromatic and fruity beer with hints of passion fruit. From marathon to the edge of heaven. Where Romans witnessed Druids. When sacrifice, ritual and cultures met. When ages welcomed magic.

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 red-orange-brown; the liquid is cloudy/murky. The two finger white compact head sinks down to a tin lid leaving some lacing.

The smell got notes of hay, dried flowers and brown sugar. Red berries and earth it the background. Fruity English yeast esters.

The taste is bitter, almost sour. Dried fruits and some caramel sweetness. Floral hops, hay and grass. Medium body. The aftertaste is a bit earthy with sharp/harsh mid-strong bitterness. Lemongrass, lime and floral bitterness in the aftertaste. The finish is harsh with dried apricots and lemon juice.

The carbonation is mild; the many small bubbles are sharp. The liquid is harsh.

Not good.
