FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017
Draught (Southampton, London)
Light fruity aroma. Pale, a touch flat., brief head. Very light palate, not sign of 6% here - its even a quaffer by feel. Light malty base, and a nice characterful mix of fruity citrussy aromatics. Has a nice bitter bite too. Seems to be aiming for the West-Coast IPA taste, and doing it with wonderful finesse.
