COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg, regular
Session IPA. A beer lacking in alcohol can’t be really flavourful as well can it? Common sense says it won’t have a big aroma full of passion fruit and mango; it wouldn’t have a well rounded mouth feel and crisp bitterness and there’s no way it’d have satisfying IPA style depth of flavour…. is there? Think again, this is a beer totally devoid of common sense, the jester in the pack, a complete Simpleton…”

kraddel (3547) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
At BBF 14. Pours clear blonde . No real head. Smell is sweet , bitter . Taste is bitter , weak . Too watery . For the ABV , it is nice, but it still can’t compete with other beers at this ABV .
