BB 28 JAN 2014, sampled on May 14, 2013.
Clear copper color, small white head. Malty, sweet, somewhat fruity scent, some tobacco as well. Malty, minerals, a bit fruity taste, dry aftertaste. Bitter finish. Medium though to the spritzy side mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Nice and balanced, very drinkable, doesn’t stand out at all, but indeed well made.
