djoeye (1572) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Brown half litre bottle pours an off white head on a golden amber body. Spread laceworks inside my mug. Fresh hops, malt, wort, yellow apple to the nose. Also hops to the tongue, and modest malts, grains, notes of apples and raisins. Feels alright, not too watery, spite low abv. Finishes with hops, dusty malts, hints of apples and fermented raisins. Overall well brewed. Went well along with ukrainian golubtsy. B@Kilpishalli T@home.
