Gurthnar (2170) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Cuso. Aroma gives me the impression of old hops. Clear yellow to golden colour, poor head. Taste is not good, astringent, sourish. Hard to perceive anything beyond that. I did not like this. For the love of hops I do not understand how are my notes so different from others’, but I will leave them as is, since it was 2 months ago. Hot candidate for a rerate someday.
