Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2010
500 ml bottle. Light amber. Clean. Tall white creamy head that clings to the glass. Soft appley aroma with some bready and fruity estery notes. Fruity flavours with a nice earthy English hops character. Soft and velvety texture. Quite rich, and leans a little towards the sweet side. Gentle hop bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable, and it has quite a bit of character, so it is not just a quencher.
