lusikka (6570) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, biscuit and honey. Flavour of floral hops, grass, hay, honey and biscuity malts. Light bodied, oily mouthfeel (because of honey) and a bitter, fruity and grassy finish. Malt profile could be better, but other than that a tasty golden ale.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Spora piana, ale znika błyskawicznie. Kolor miedziany i klarowny. Chmielowy zapach, wyraźnie czuć ten amerykański chmiel Amarillo. W smaku także dominuje ten amerykański chmiel. Wytrawny i goryczkowy finisz
