Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gusher. Mærk ravfarget,uklar. Enormt mye skum. Smaker malt,humle,karamell,honning,grapefrukt,furunål. Ganske god, men keg synes den bar ganske dævv. Sansynligvis fordi halve inneholdet sprutet ut på kjøkkengulvet når jeg åpnet den, og resten i flasken ble til skum. Tror jeg må rate denne på nytt en annen gang NikkTwist (3253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB. caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2013
