Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2011
A few pints of cask ale at Christian Firtal. Almost clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, with fruity and floral notes and a touch of sulphur. Sweetish full bodied malt flavour with a faint caramel note and lots of hops. Mostly grassy and spicy hops, with a wooden note - English and European character. Do I even need to mention that it’s another delicious Crouch Vale beer in perfect balance - hardly surprising.
