eduardovl (942) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Pilsen glass. A: Pours a very clear gold yellow color forming a medium, white and very bubbled head. Low retention and some thin lacings left in the glass S: Artificial plastic and adjunct malts in the nose. Terrible. Sweet grains and some flowery hops in the end T: Sweet grains. Again, quite artificial in the mouth, tastes like plastic. Adjunct malts, mainly. Light bitterness M: Light body. High carbonation. Adjunct malts aftertaste O: Low drinkability. Disgusting [ BA Review @ 5/15/2014 ]
