ClubGonzo (4725) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2015
On tap @ The Swan, London. Clear amber body, small white head. Nose is nuts, nougat, bread and hints of biscuits and straw. Taste is caramel, almond essence, bread crust, biscuits and hints of nuts and straw. Light body, soft carbonation. Pretty standard bitter with an almondy touch. Pretty boring, but fair enough.

ON TAP Well balanced beer. It is one of my favorites. Easy drinking. Some bitterness on final, but not too much, which makes a very good beer. Worth a try.
