Certified Cicerone ® & BJCP Recognized Beerjudge Bartender @ Beerlovers Bar & Owner @ Siris About Beer. All ratings displayed on this site are personal opinions, and are not neccesarily to be seen as professional reviews. Some of these beers have been drank in conditions that were far from optimal. If you'd like a professional review of your beer, please contact me. Always interested in meeting up/sharing beers / trading beer . Next to beer, I have a big passion for Ice cider, Mead, and Sherry. Exploring the wine and spirit world asside of this all. Allow me to explain a bit on how I score. These are based on personal enjoyment. Quality & 'in style' are part of that enjoyment, but won't totally make or break a drink, if I myself have a different opinion. Whiskey : Rated on the website 'whiskeybase' ( account Kraddell ) Wine : Rated on the App / Site 'Vivino' ( Account named Kraddel . ) <-- with the dot. Still searching a medium for other spirits, so those aren't online for now. If you know anything, let me know ;) For all mediums, the score is decided like this : 100 : Absolute perfection. Must have sampled it at least twice, and be mindblown twice. 90 - 100 : absolutely amazing. I'd like a drink like this anytime, even if it ain't the cheapest. 80-90 : Very damn good. It'll depend a bit more on the price - but this is probably one to seek out. 70-80 : better than average . Will likely enjoy again if it's priced compeditive. 70 : Average score for anything with alcohol . // 50 : The absolute middlepoint ( pure H2O ) Anything with alcohol beneath 50 is simply not worth drinking (seriously, concider your liver) // 05 : The absolute, final downpoint . Songs shall be written about how this attack to the tastebuds has started a rage within, killing inocent bystanders for no apparent reason - other than the fact my life is ruined by drinking this. On the other hand, it's kinda interesting to try something THIS bad, so you should probably seek it out ! As you can see, I use the FULL scale , and a rating of 70 by myself isn't bad at all !

7.4
Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 6.5 | Flavor - 7.5 | Texture - 8 | Overall - 8

Pours a hazed, warm yellow. Medium sized, stable white head. Scent is fairly mild. Some malts shine trough (creamy, white bread) fairly mild hoparoma. All and all, not bad, but a too low on intensity. Also at only 4.5 ABV this is a DDH Pale Ale, more than an IPA to me, which would provide better expectations towards the aroma intensity as well. Taste is Surprisingly bitter (still, in style ) . Bit dank. Surprisingly intense on the aroma here. Orange, tropical fruits. Creamy body, ends perhaps just a tad to dry and sharp for the style. Expressive yellow fruityness as well, mild yeast ( again, in style). Not overly complex, but to provide this good of a beer at 4.5 % is always a good thing in my book !
