mzaar (2636) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2015
Flaska. Dimmig mörkorange öl med ett medelstort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av grapefrukt, tall och gräs. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, citrus, karamell, blomster och tall. Medel mot stor kropp. Till en början rätt ensidig beska men en försiktig maltsötma stagar så sakteliga upp det hela.
