Lagerboy (1227) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
Opaque amber orange, small off white head fades. Strong aroma of fruity hop and caramel malt. Intense bitter floral fruity hop taste, balanced nicely with sweet caramel malts, citrus grapefruit and pine resin. Softly carbed, full bodied, aggressively hopped. Sweet and boozey into a long dry bitter finish. Very good. DNFL (Definately Not For Lagerboys)
