Handwritten notes: Is this an amber or a blonde? What's the fecking difference anyways? This has a plummy/pruney base and a hop-top. Luckily it does not assault you with any particular flavour and you are left with a "beerey" aftertaste. There is definitely a transition of flavour going on. Somersaults are easy. Cartwheels are hard. I can do one but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. When's the last time you (yeah, you) did a cartwheel or somersault? That's why growing up sucks. That's why.
