ThirstyBird (2101) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
On cask at the Blacksmiths Arms in St Albans. Pours a clear golden yellow with a pretty white cap. The smell is grain, fruity, a bit of citrus coming through. The taste is fruity up fruit with since sweet light malt backing it up, a dry, crisp finish makes for a nice ending. Light with nice, give carbonation. A very pleasant beer.
