Rinkuskiai Aiko Pale

Yes, I’ve been shopping at Brookhaven again, my favorite Bulgarian market, and that’s where I found Rinkuskiai Aiko Pale.  Medium gold, light carbonation and a splotchy but long-lasting are the first impressions of this beer.  The bouquet is great:  malt first, a whiff of alcohol, followed by some sweetness and a hint of grain.  A bit thin in the mouth, the hops are light and floral and the finish is dry.  Plenty of splotchy lacing, too.  It’s OK, light, summery, but I would like a maltier, more substantial beer, please.
