Slightly thin body with vague notes of caramel and some fruity vitamin touches. Almost no bitterness. Surprisingly bland compared to other Huvilas. 270707 Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2007
Bottled. Hazy dark amber coloured. Fruity aroma, especially apples. Fruity and slightly hoppy flavour. Some bitterness in the finish. FatPhil (16103) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 Deep red, thin bready head. Subtle aroma - beer imminant that’s for sure. A bit creamy I guess. Swirl it to get rid of excess carbonation. Then it will taste of great old-fashoned classic English bitter. Hints of ginger, good hops - probably goldings. So sessionable, so tasty.
