[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ @Bullfrog ][ $1.50 ][ Taster ][ 05.08.15 ]
milky lemon, fizzy white small bubbled ring. Watery sour nose, wood heavy with moderate bitterness. Sugary front palate. Juicy yetmoderately medicinal mid with faint plastic/vegetal bitterness before the moderately dry finish with champagne consistency but way too much sweetness, tastes cheap with off plastic all over.
