Martin243 (894) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2015
500 ml bottle from Glug Newcastle. Fruity aroma. Poured into a tulip. Hazy yellow with a proud white head. Apple, celery and cereal flavours. Sweet malt with a dry finish. In this unpasteurised, unfiltered form, I was reminded strongly of Zwickel/Keller/Landbier variants I’ve enjoyed in Germany and Austria. Nice beer
