ERB92 (576) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
Citrus, grass, fruits and some herbs in the aroma, Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a lively carbonation. Overall a refreshing and fruity ale, a bit too much carbonated for my taste unfortunately, but still very drinkable.

Bottle shared by esp0r. Semihazy golden body with a white head. Faint hoppy aroma with choriander, ginger. Taste is fairly dry with a light sweetness, and the spices coming back towards the finish together with lemon, leaving a nice, not extraordinary, fruity aftertaste.
