This was totally clear and a lot less spicy, although I have a cold. Also very little urinal cake. Much better.

BitchPls (489) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Lots of carbonation, pils looking beer with a head which reminds of a foam bath. Hops smell strong in this one. The mouth feel is really full and wonderful. The bitterness is well balanced and does not attack too strongly. The hops have a round and smooth taste and mouth feel which I like - the hops donít sting you. Absolutely a pleasure to drink. The carbonation does not feel too strongly in your mouth either. The sweetness suits this beer well.
