Sparf (269) - SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2016
Frisk citrusdoft p en ltt karamellbetonad malt. Ljus, gyllengul frg, disig, med ett mycket ttt skum. Metallisk karaktr och med en halvkraftig men helt obalanserad humlekomposition som spretar hit och dit. I vrigt en blaskig karaktr och inte mycket mer att hmta. Torr avrundning och en eftersmak med en otrevligt skarp beska.

Hazy gold beer with a tidy white head. Light crisp palate. Minerals. Mallinsons soap, not too bad. Very dry citrus. Very dry finish with medium bitterness. Much too dry! Bah! 2.5

23rd October 2016
Out of date bottle from Beer Ritz. Perle, Cascade, Amarillo and Brewers Gold hops. Tangy orangey lemon with a light floral vibe. More airy than dry. Much better.
