NosirIwont (2364) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
Can. Pours a clear light brown with a creamy beige head. Weak aroma; sweetish and hoppy. Okay in itself, but just too weak – would have scored higher if it had been more powerful. Flavour is fruity and hoppy (with a bit of citrus) with notes of winegums (like Bassett’s blackcurrant). Bitter, malty finish, tart with a fruity touch. 22.10.10.

It’s dark red amber with a dense, creamy and lasting head. The aroma is mild with notes of caramel, malt and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, malt, fruit, and the finish is dry. It’s uncomplicated and easy to drink.
