skortila (4801) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has grain, bit honey, floral hops. Clear, golden-copper coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light bitter, bit sweet, has floral and citric tones and is quite grainy.Light and easy drinking beer. Well brewed, but didn’t really enjoy the grainy part. Reminds me of cheap lagers.

500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a small but lacing off-white head. Light aroma with malt and a hint of fruit. Flavor is mild pale malt, some fruit, low bitterness and slightly metallic. Thin body and not much aftertaste. Plain, boring, one-dimensional and already forgotten.
