Hazy amber beer. Softish palate but with a carbonated sting. A little creamy malt and then mild hop bitterness. Quite minerally. Decent but lacking something, perhaps a little watery. Hard to criticise but doesn’t make the top tier.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
Beautiful amber color, big head, not persistent, leaving an irregular lace. The aroma is a nice combination of British Bitter (British yeast, earthy), and American hops (fruity). It has a very good caramel flavor, for once not sweet, and of course a very strong hopping, resiny and fruity, with bitter oranges. Some sweetness comes to the surface in the end, making the final more interesting, waves of intense bitterness and sweetness. Very good.
