sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2008
(Bottled) Slightly hazy ambr with a medium, bubbly-lacy head. Aroma of caramely malt, some diacetylic homebrewness, nutty-aromatic hops. Nutty-bitter-hoppy flavor with some glue-solventy notes, and caramely malt. Medium body with soft carbonation. Basically a decent bitter, but the solventy flavors pretty much win over the nutty British hoppiness. Decent one, but could be cleaner.
