Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Pours pale yellow-golden with a small, frothy, white film head. Fine duration. Aroma is pleasant, earthy, citric, apples, melons, subte crisp malts. Low carbonation, great dry and rather creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is earthy again, light fruity, pepper, rosees, floral, kinda crisp maltiness in the centre before citric hops take over at the end. Nice.
