laiti (4945) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2011
Cask @ O’Connell’s Irish Pub
Aroma is rather light with some bready malt and hints of gastric acid. Flavour is sweetish with toffee, bready malt and hints of caramel. Flavour is also omewhat tart and acidic, which is not usual for a real ale. Dry and leathery palate. Decent, probably I had the rest of the cask since this was rather low on flavours and high on tartness.
