oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2008
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Amber colour, small white floamy head. Aroma is zest, mild spices and some grassyness. Some mild toffee and breadyness lurking in the background as it gets slightly warmer. Flavour is malts, grass and some mild fruity and flowery hops. The grassyness is quite dry and biting, and turns into a rather earthy/grassy mildly fruity thing in the finish. Long grassy and zesty aftertaste. Semidry palate. A standard US APA.
