Rating #889, flaske til VM i ØL

Brun øl med fint skum og neutral duft af brød og gær. Smag af gær, sukker, brød og mere gær. Den virker slet ikke færdigmodnet.

BrianWillum (197) - København S., DENMARK - JAN 6, 2014
Served from large bottle. Dark red coloured beer. Head disappears quite fast. Odour is sweet with hints of honey and spruce. Taste is unfortunately too sweet and a bit too alcoholic. Aftertaste is too alcoholic.
