FatPhil (8997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2010
Cask (GBBF2010)
6 SImple mashy aroma, some light fruits.
3 Pale, small head.
7 Not big, but crisp and distinct tastes - pale grains and delicate hops.
4 Soft palate, carbonation pleasant. As you’d expect from a golden, the finish is pleasant hoppy. 14 Like it. DIdn’t know it had elderflowers, that explaans the light fruitiness in the aroma.
