FatPhil (11818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2009
Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Classic clean English bitter aroma. Lovely standard refreshing bitter loads of lightly roasted, slightly grainy, malts. and a touch of scotch ale horse blanketty mustiness. Soft bittering hops are quite subtle, but pleasant. Grainy and slightly bitter finish. Very simple, but so tasty and easy to drink.
