2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, minimal head. Citric tangerine aroma. Fairly sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Rich salty citric hops, very clean crystal malt character. Really bitter finish. American style, both in hops and malt. I prefer when British brewers do the former, but am not too keen about the latter.
