omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2008
Bottled. Clear amber, minimal head. Nutty malty aroma - just like if it was the real Spitfire. However the thin and watery sloppy body makes it sharp and empty and suggests that it contains 75% Spitfire and 25% tap water. Finishes with diluted resiny bitterness.A good beer completely destroyed. Normally English low gravity beers doesn’t taste this way.
