Don’t get much in the aroma, but it looks beautiful. Full creamy head. Flavor is quite tasty and smooth with just a little bitterness. Enjoyed with FatPhil who was kind enough to hop over from Estonia and show me around.

Draught (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Nice sweetish honey aroma, some evidence of bittering hops. Paleish orange, lovely spongy persistent head. Beautiful soft palate, carbonation low, ahhhh, real ale how I’ve missed you. Fairly simple sweet malty twiggy bitter taste. Gold? Nah, this is just a classic bitter. Hops only realy present as bittering. Slightly milky malty finish, gentle dry bitter dusting. Simple, but tasty, such an easy drinker.

Bottle from a Cornish Morrisons. Slightly hazy with a white head. Not very much going on with this. A little biscuity malt, some citrus and a hint of spice. Pretty bland.
