Ljus Ale, bra huve! Kanske är full men känner söt doft av malt & belgisk jäst, lite skosula? Smaken är alkohol söt. Man känner verkligen alkoholen men inte på ett dåligt vis. Den tillför en trevlig sötma utan att bli för mycket, men det har säkert mycket med den fina humlen att göra som kommer in som en som en Pale Ale eller APA. Amerikansk humle någon? Kroppen är halv. Eftersmaken är ej på topp. Har lagrat denna 2 år, så överraskande kul att humle fanns kvar. Dock hoppades jag på bättre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
