beeebon (308) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a golden amber with a substantial white head which clings to the top of the drink throughout. Smell is grassy, floral, slight citrus and a sweetish malt. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, nicely balanced. Not too watery and overall a nice lingering taste. Pretty decent bitter!
