FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2010
Keg (Brasserie Federale, Zurich)
Nondescript dusty aroma. Pale orange, some head. Sweet malts in the aroma too. Some beer in the taste - it’s even got some fruity esters and a hint of roast malts in the retronasals. Taste pretty plain, but recognisably made of beer ingredients. Finish a bit papery. Best of the pale ones in the 7-glass sampler, but still not good.
