BitchPls (726) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
Hazy, orange beer with a big white foam. Mildly fruity, quite floral aroma. Quite oily texture and strong bodied. Quite harsh bitterness. Yes there is bitterness and yes theres a lot of hops but the taste isnt really that great. Very unsurprising and mediocre. Meh.

Bottle from Reading BF 2016. Deep gold colour slight haze lasting white head. Fresh leafy hop aroma with some toast. Attractive. Malts are still not up there with the cask conditioned beer I have had today. Some sweetness. Yes some US malt but a huge hop presence too which is fun. Some heat from the alcohol good hops
