danielyabu (1549) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 19, 2015
Reminder: the one I had yesterday says Kyara India Pale Lager on the label, and since I couldn’t find the exact same name on RB’s list, I’m posting my impressions here. Aroma: moderate hoppy, orange and grass. Appearance: small frothy white head. dark yellow, clear, average-density body. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. Initial and final flavors: moderate bitter (hoppy) and light sweet (orange); long duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. Well done. Bearable hop bitterness. 40s usd3,95

Medium sweet flavor with sugary crackers, crusty bread, hay, golden raisins, stale pine, marshmallows. Medium bodied with average carboantion.
