oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2007
Bottled (as Boont ESB). Orange golden colour with longlasting white head. Aroma is hops, caramel and some kind of yeastyishness. Flavour is fruity and flowery hops mainly. The finish gets dominated by flowery hops and yeast. Wellbalanced, but at the same time a quite thin brew. Long grassy and yeasty aftertaste.
