McNeillR (976) - SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Pale golden and again clear, small white head. Lemony grassy lemongrass grassy lemon nose. Smells like a cleaning spray not a beer. Taste is buckets of the same with a bit more citrus speckle. There’s a tangy malt, but deflected by a clean mouthfeel. The finish, however, is like licking a rusty soap dish in an out of town service station. Very odd.
