bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Something of a malt aroma with citrus hop, but it leaves something of a floral impression? Very light amber color with a decently frothy near-white head. It did some lacing. Starts with a slight sour, perhaps medicinal, characteristic, reminiscent of some Siletz products, but not so strong. Definitely malt, and the finish seems decently bitter. Relatively dry. Seems a bit thin, but it’s nicely drinkable.

Bottled: Orange farvet. Er let tåget. Har et lyst beige skum, med en høj tæthed. Holder godt. Medium karbonering. Citrus, let frugt and let caramel i aromaen. Smagen er let humlet og blomstret. Har noget sødme og frugtighed. Er lidt bitter i enden. Tør og medium fylde. God balance. Tak til Ungstrup for denne øl fra hans overskudslager.
