FatPhil (15961) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2017
KeyKeg (TCBW2017)
Sweet starchy aroma, stanky hops, citrussy and sweet. Clear pale orange, small tight head. Fleshy fruit dominated taste, peachy hops, sweet, but actual malts are low in the mix. Light palate, aided by crisp carbonation, fairly drinkable. Nice citrussy bitter finish. Seems like an APA recipe on steroids, didnĺt work so well lfor me.
