Beerheart65 (1024) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Golden ochre with lots of sparkling, huge frothy head is medium long and off-white. Grainy mild aroma, grass, bit caramel. Medium body, round, carbonation works, semidry, long grainy finish has also bit fruit notes. Bit one-sided but flavors not bad, just lacks nuances.
