adasko (973) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 20, 2014
In aroma it’s mostly hoppy and malty. It’s bright yellow color, a little bit hazy, with small head. In taste there is nothing else but bitterness. It’s not moderated or covered by anything. It’s very long but quite pleasant. The beer is very refreshing but runny in taste.
