UPDATED: SEP 27, 2018 Bottle 33cl from Oslo airport. Amber, hazy with a white head. Triple hops aroma. Medium bitter with a double hop end. Almost to much of the good stuff. Fin (12115) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2018
Bottle picked up from Cotteridge Wines, Cotteridge, Birmingham and consumed Mini Camping Polderflora, Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, Friday 21st September 2018. Pours a reddy amber colour with a white or maybe off white head. Quite a substantial mouthfeel, a touch syrupy, lots of resinous flavours here and despite sweetness it's got a persistent bitterness. Marmalade and pine resin are the key standouts for me. Lovely beer. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0 BeerVegard (421) - NORWAY - SEP 24, 2018
