Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at Braustelle, Koln, Germany, Friday 28th March 2014 Dark amber (but a very tricky light, quite gloomy) so cannot be certain of colour. Very much like a UK ESB but with a nice German malty profile, not sure of the hops either but perhaps these are also German. Fruity with a good malty ’soreen’ bite along with a steely enduring but far from harsh bitterness. A very tasty decent Alt. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8
