Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2010
330ml bottle from bierkompass! The beer in glass is golden yellow, slightly cloudy with a high, medium crown, which disappears quickly. The smell is spicy yeasty, slightly sour. The beer starts good hoppy, yeasty and sour also noticeable. Tastes initially almost like an IPA, but the penetrating power of an IPA is missing! The bitter-sour aroma will remain in place throughout, but weakens the beer slightly. The finish is yeasty- sour, reminiscent of a Zwickel-Bier! For me, this beer is the perfect mixture of a traditional"Blonde" and an "IPA ". Not bad!
