kaserov (216) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2016
Pensaba que iba a ser una Sour Ale, pero de eso tiene poco. Color dorado con capa de espuma blanca de menos de un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Aroma a alcohol, bastante suave. En boca es alcohólica, algo amarga, algo dulce. No encuentro nada de acidez, solo alcohol. Di dos o tres tragos y la dejé.

uckelman (648) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
A ring of off-white head. Can definitely smell the Grand Mariner. Tart and mineral, with a mildly citrus pith finish. Rather odd.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Very little aroma. Poured into a red cup, so I don’t know what it looks like, other than that it has little head. Flavor is quite subtle: Not sour. Medicinal on the tongue. Only hints of the Grand Marnier come through, adding a bit of warmth.
