COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Jultsu (565) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
BBE 28.04.16. Tumman mustanpunertava, nopeasti katoava vaahto. Maan multainen suklainen tunkkainen tuoksu. Suutuntuma laimeaa suklaata, espressoa, palaneisuutta, vetinen alapää. Kokonaisuus ihan kiva.
