Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Slightly hazy golden with a lasting bubbly head. Lovely malt nose - grass, straw, hay, with soft floral hops also. Slightly soapy but lovely distinctive perfumed hops and a good hay-like malt backbone. Medium smooth body and a nice lingering lightly bitter berry aftertaste. Very nice example of the style.
