elbernays (544) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2013
These Fyne ales are quite similar and think I should have drank another beer between this and jarl. Clear gold, Citrus hop aroma, some bready notes. Sweet sherbert flavours. Light body. These are nice refreshing beers if not that different from one another.
