TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear light golden with a small white head and an aroma of malts, floral hops, citrus, biscuit, aluminium, cardboard and grapefruit. The taste is better than the aroma (I dislike the metal and cardboard notes in the aroma but they don’t show in the taste), complex malty and hoppy notes, this is a really nice brew for the low amount of alcohol.

I like it a lot. Quite light (good for the summer) and very citrusy from the Amarillo hops. Good use of new world hops in a traditional style of beer.
