FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 6, 2008
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Clear gold, small head. Bready and yeasty aroma. OK, OK, there’s plenty of grapefruity sweet citrussy hops too. Fresh and sharp - there’s a zingy little dance on the tongue. Long long finish - soapy hops. Quite simple and similar to many of their other brews, but as they churn out dozens of great beers, that’s not a problem at all.
