UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Draught (Black Door, Helsinki)
Ewww, floor cleaner citrus aroma. Pale bitter, but lovely spongy persistent head. Nice malty body, quite grainy, twiggy bitterness. Decent bitter, but so inferior to the classic old Cornish Knocker. New hop variety? Burn all of them, they’re a mess.
Rerate: Doesn’t smell so weird, quite nice tea. Give it an extra point.
