Russo (2006) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2015
Bottled. Slightly hazy golden color with a frothy white head that do not last too long but keeps a nice lacing. Aroma is citrus and malty, notes of pine. Flavor is bitter and a little bit salty, some sweetness comes up in the end. Mediu to high carbonation, medium body with a thin textures and bitter finish. Nice drinkability, refreshing.

Bottle from Aldi for £1.49. This is a personal favourite of mine. I find it sweet without being cloying or too filling. The lemon and the elderflower complement each other, rather than competing, adding to the taste.

Bottle @home. Pours amber/orange big white head, this might have been me. Malty nose with a floral/pine/citrus kick. Taste is elderberry and citrus fruits, tastes fresh. Solid bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 Nice looking extraordinary ale. Better drink slow and regardfully to feel all those great qualities like medium bitter at the beginning, cereal taste with a touch of elderberry and lemon, noble aftertaste at the end. Great job, Williams bros!
