jmgreenuk (5606) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines and shared with Kermis on the NS HiSpeed tasting to Antwerp. Poured a hazy medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is big grassy nettle hop and sweet fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a lovely smooth spicy hop, very slightly metallic, rich fruit palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a short hoppy menthol bitter finish. Despite the ABV, there was no alcohol burn. A super fresh, smooth and well balanced beer. It’s up above Pliny for me.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö, 7.1% ABV
Cloudy amber color with creamy head. Aroma of fudge, nice bit suspicious. Smooth mouthfeel, caramel flavor, some fudge, correct bitterness with some late hop resins; it’s good how the elements are blended together here.
