thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Bjergtrolden, Roskilde.
Clear golden with lots of bubbles. Medium, fizzy, white head on top. Aroma has pilsner malt sweetness, some doughy character, light baking yeast and a hint of grassy hops. Highish carbonation, kinda fat and oily mouthfeel that doesn’t really fit it well. Flavour is heavy sweet, toffee-like malts, doughy and light citric and grassy bitterness. Quite the weird beast...
