VamboladeTolly (1275) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle @ Žmogšala3 festival, Vilnius. Pours amber almost no head. Aroma: caramel, sweetish, hay- feels like old and the hops are dead- didnt saw BB. Taste: same as aroma+ a bit grassy, bitter. Medium body. Bitter finish. Hope I can get it more- maybe it was out of date.

Greforb (3) - - DEC 30, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Amber with average almost white foam. I don’t get much fruit like others have stated but the hop aroma has citrus and pine notes indeed. The taste is pretty sweet malty with a strong dominance of caramel. Drinkable.
