HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2011
500ml bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Hazy orange, smallish drool of head. Slight acetone aroma, apricot and flowers. Taste follows, a little dry and papery, bitterness is all tattoo girl - I mean floral. Watery body, a bit astringent, mildly carbonated with a somewhat pungent floral finish. Ehhh .
