jrodooo5 (1564) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2016
Clean and crisp with an odd bitterness in the finish. Pours ok - gold with a thin white head & a tad bit of lacing. The aroma is primarily grainy and malty. The taste is clean until the odd bitter finish. Its not bad for the style but not the greatest overall.

500ml bottle. I didnt find as much aroma as the label led me to believe, but this is a smooth session ale, not bad at all.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. Christmas gift. A golden orange sparkling beer ; few bubbles ; medium white head with a poor retention. Caramel, herb, light floral, lemon. Medium dry bitter refreshing ; sweet note. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, short bitter floral finish. Overall, ok hoppy bitter ale ; refreshing but as expected ; a little sad.
