One of those beers where the nice parts are in the beginning and in the end. The middlepart is so-so. Very floral aroma that returns in the long finish. Tastes almost American to me.

PaulW (105) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Big amarillo nose. Lovely juicy aroma. Malt generally overwhelmed by big dose of hops, which ensure a long bitter finish. Lovely.
