Draught @ O’Hara’s Freehouse
Aroma is slightly sweet, fruity and hoppy with apricot. Flavour is refreshing and hoppy with apricot, some gooseberry bush, resin, hints of pea soup and vegetables. Sweetish finish. Good and refreshing, although the vegetable savors disturb me a bit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weicher, ziemlich milder Hopfenbeginn. Statt im Anschluss intensiver zu werden gesellen sich erdige Noten zum Hopfen, ausgewogen aber recht schwach. Dunkel getreidig, süffig. Nett und erfrischend. 9/8/9/9/8/9
