futre7 (174) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 24, 2011
Floral scent. Very thin head. Quite a lot of carbonation for an ale. Taste is slightly bitter citrus with traces of hops. Not an overly impressive ale. Has a lot in common with an average lager. Overall unremarkable but not disgusting. At 4.1% it can be sessioned.
