laiti (5694) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Draught @ Black Door
Aroma has peaches, hops, exotic fruits, resiny notes and hints of caramel. Flavour has exotic fruits, some peaches, biscuits and quite odd woody and gluey off-flavour. Also some resiny malt. Quite strong, lingering hops in the finish with herbal notes and grass. Good.
