djoeye (1487) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2013
500 ml clear bottle abv 4.2, bought at K Kilpishalli Finland. Vanilla head, dark golden, or a little dark amber body. Spicy malty scents, coffee and lots of hops. Average mouthfeel with some roasted bitter style. The flavour has hops, caramel malts, hints of walnut. Ending is not longlasting, it’s dry and contains nutty malts. Overall alright, and quite mild for being a bitter.
