Dashimus (219) - London, Greater London, - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle at The Laundromat Cafe, Reykjavík. Pours a dark yellow with a medium white head that faded quickly. Aroma was faint with fruit And maybe some caramel. Both a light sweet and bitter flavour with an abrupt finish. Not bad but a little underwhelming. Thin body with very little carbonation.

Bottle in my Copenhagen hotel room. Thanks again to Rune, such a generous lovely Ratebeerian. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light airy malt, some floralness. Trace of apple tang and a touch of paper. Light airy finish. Not great.

Bottle., at Jomfruin in Reykjavik. Surprised to see that it’s a California common style! Delicate florals and clean pale malts. Very enjoyable, surprisingly aromatic.

Very rich and flavorful with an almost perfect balance of hops that highlights the creamy malt base.
