OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Clear amber to orange colored. Low blond top. Smell of hay-ish hops and light caramel malts. Medium full. Taste is more fruity than malty. Quite modest, with a note of flowery, maybe soapy hops, and a light toasted/caramelly malt base. Short, bitterish ending. No flaws, not very interesting either. [Sampled at the brewery, 01.09.13]
