DraftDodger (1226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2017
Copenhagen 16/1 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Must be the most boring label on the shelf. Grey with a gold logo - and not much else. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with very small head. Disappears almost instantly. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Some sweetness - but dominated by more citric odeurs. Pleasant but not very intense. Quite low carbonation - pretty flat - and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by nice medium bitterness. Quite well balanced. More exciting than indicated by the label even though its a bit flat.

FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2016
Draught (Kittys, Helsinki)
Mid orangle tight head - maybe a touch under-conditioned, but still looks good. Lovely sweet honey malts and black tea aroma - classic bitter aroma. Some dark tracle too. Taste so simple, its just a bitter, but by heck its a proper bitter and that tastes great. Feels good on the tongue, good drinkabiliy, and a pleasant soft carbonation. Fkit, this might be an over-rate, but this is a textbook example of how even a "boring" real ale can be better than an on-paper more exciting kraft monstrosity. Finish is gently nutty and a touch sweet. Puts a smile on my face, and isnt that one of the most important features? Oh, and the fatty bitty hops, did I mention the fatty bitter hops: Because I really should have mentioned that seared fat, but alas I was too rushed...
