beeR (61) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2008
Draught at Pub 38 (Malgrate, Lecco). Huge white and lasting head, deep and clear amber colour. Sweeter than expected, both aroma and flavor. Caramel and malty sweetness in the nose, fruity and just hins of hops. The flavor is even sweeter, too much for me, caramel and buttery. Medium body and a spicy but creamy mothfeel.

Tap at Au Bon Vieux Temps. Light floral hop aroma. Golden color with a lacing white head. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Quite fruity in a pale fruit way. Very lightly bitter. Decent, clean, refreshing, semi-English drink. Makes a nice change.
