Hanoi (443) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
From notes. Nose is raspberry and sugar, slight back note from the sour base beer. Taste is raspberry juice, leading to sugar and then green apple from the sour beer. The interesting base beer makes it a step up from an Alcopop, but it’s still a beer for people who don’t have a palate.
