MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2016
Cask. Mild fruity and creamy aroma. Hazy amber colour. Good stable creamy off-white head. Distinct raw liquorice taste, not bitter, though. Then comes some fruit and acid in ok balance. More fruit in the finish. Starts off quite powerful but mellows out after a bit.
