Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at Rock Bottom Richmond Short Pump. Pale clear yellow, slight head. Aroma lightly of pale malt and floral hops. Flavor matches, with some fruity esters. Not perhaps totally to style, but deviated in ways I liked. Good lawnmower brew, well executed.
