jmgreenuk (4071) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2013
500cl Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a hazy dark brown with a thin white broken head. The aroma is of red berry fruit and a little malt. The flavour is medium bitter, with a lovely mellow malty, fruity, nut palate. The finish is smooth and medium bitter. It’s like no other beer i’ve ever tasted.
