bottle from Baltic Branch Dover. Clear golden colour with a creamy white head. Slightly sweet malt aroma and flavours dominate, grainy, very smooth, with very good aromatic and bitter hops. Bitter-sweet overall character, due to the velvety carbonation and the intensive flavours very moreish. Another delicious beer from Bauskas Alus!
