Delirium (657) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle from the local Asda. Pours clear golden with a moderate white head. Aroma and flavor are what’s on the label: honey and hops. Aroma is more balanced than flavor, which has some bitter notes that to me come off as harsh in a relatively light-bodied beer. Interesting but not one of my favorites.

En honingale med god maltet smag. Ikke så sødlig som så mange honingale jeg har smagt.
