Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush. Poured a hazy, very pale golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma was very light, with some sharp fruit, dough and gooseberries. Orange and elderflower flavours, with some mineral notes. Finish was very light; some bread, tinned fruit and hay. Fairly nondescript, but nothing bad about it.
