larsga (7242) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2016
Big white head. Hazy amber body with lots of floaties. Fruity mealy aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet herbal mealy fruity taste. Mid-to-light body. Fizzy mealy mouthfeel. Mealy fruity aftertaste with herbal notes. Either my nose is screwed, or this is not really a very interesting beer. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)
