oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled. Ambery brown colour, small slightly off white head. Aroma is wood, some resin, mildly nutty along with a quite fresh floral tone to it. Also some mild sweet malty notes to balance it up with. Flavour is quite crisp and nice maltiness with some caramel and biscuits to it. This comes in a nice balance with the wooden and resiny notes from the hops, finishing off in a nice mellow bitter grassy and floral way.

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Cask @ Old Fountain. Copper pour with a modest off-white head. Delicate floral hoppiness. A bit of black pepper and tulip bulbs. Mellow candied apple. Lovely spicy flavor. Sweet brown bread and toffee balancing a surprisingly vibrant dirty hoppiness. Flavorful but eminently drinkable. Light body soft carbonation. On cracking form. This is legit.
