Cask (EBF2008)larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2008
Dusty hop aroma. Taste is a decent sweet malt, and loads of bitter hops which build up over time. Of course, they leave a very decent bitter finish.
Medium coarse offwhite head. Amber body. Light, delicate fruity tea aroma with wooden malty notes. Dry-sweet wooden smoky taste with fruity tea taste. Some vinegar in the background. Dry acidic rye bread aftertaste. Quite good. (0.1l taster from cask at EBF ’08.) bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2008
