cirzen (14) - FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
500ml bottle. Slightly zesty nose, green fruit and something like wet rubber. Initial taste impressions weren’t good, the aftertaste goes a little off, bitterness merging into amyl but half way through the glass it’s softened. Now the orange hops come through. A little resin. An odd but not uninteresting brew, I suspect it needs to be drunk on a hot summer day rather than in the depths of winter to be enjoyed properly.

samuelbuca (2) - Spalding, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014 does not count
Good tasting beer with a definite citrus aftertaste. The low alcohol makes it a very good session beer
