330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Aroma? What aroma? Is that toilet? Possibly it smells of the toilet cubes and the soaps. Hazy copper, persistent head. Taste is super bland. Watery. Some sour notes. Chlorine industrial cleaner. Acid. Yikes, what has happened to what I was sure was one of the best (exported) Danish breweries, way more misses than hits this year.
