HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - blankboy’s bottle. Hazy orangey-yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is sweetly spicy and yeasty, lemon zest and alcohol. Taste is similar, a little more lemony and alcoholic - bit of a boozy spicy finish. Average body, slighlty harsh and sticky - nice, a bit too boozy.

White frothy head on a golden body. Taste is yeasty, pretty strong, with notes of fruits an liquorice. The alcohol is not very obvious. Rather pleasant experience, didn’t make me drunk despite the awful name (grin).
