Drinking this beer reminds me of the ebbs and flows of life itself. From one pint to the next, I am confronted by the full spectrum of human emotion - whilst slowly (but surely) being beckoned into the warm embrace of an old and trusted friend. I do not drink this beer by choice, it has become an event only celebrated bi-monthly - I know it needs to be done, but like a kebab; I only hunger for it as a means sustaining my ability to function in this crazy crazy world. Life is special. Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2016
