cagou007 (923) - FRANCE - APR 18, 2016
Pours clear amber with thick white head. Nose are herbal hops. Aromas are grassy hops, toasted malts, white flowers, citrusy notes. Dry mouthfeel, very bitter in taste. Low carbonation, light body. Long bitter and grassy finish. Aromas aren’t very interesting despite the use of a citra and galaxy, but honorable ESB anyway.
