Clear, bright pale golden with a minimal head which quickly fades.
A nose you might expect from a classic pilsner but with more pronounced hops and grassy/hay aromas.
Dry, bitter, hop dominated with malt notes fighting for attention. Flavour is a tad one-dimensional.
Bitterness lingers in the slightly metallic long finish.
Closure: Crown cap
