33 cl. bottle @ Bart. Golden yellow with a ehite head. The smell and taste is standard IPA with some more yeast than normal. A slight metallic aftertaste spoils the fun a little bit but all in all a decent beer.

Bottle to pre-game for Borefts. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is strong herbs, marmalade orange, peachy sweet malt, light eau de cardboard. The taste is tinny peaches, some bubblegum. Lightly metallic finish. Actually nice flavors, but the cardboard notes bring this down a bit.
