Zumona Alt Aroma and Taste

Zumona Alt poured out a copper red colour with a head that had a reddish tinge to it. The head faded fast to a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. There was a distinct sweet caramel and toffee aroma coming off of Zumona Alt. There was also a slightly plummy aroma to it too but it’s all malt in Zumona Alt.

The body was light to medium – enough to support the typical flavours – caramel and toffee – while the earthy hops but the flavours faded too fast to leave a slight sticky residue on the tongue.

Zumona Alt The Bottom Line

Zumona Alt is well made but it’s over all to fast for the price.
