Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/08/2012


(best before 09-Mar-13) Clear, pale bright yellow with a thin white head which quickly fades to mere ring of foam.


Subdued nose with starchy notes, floral hops and a cat pee-like skunk aroma.


Medium-light bodied and slightly sweet with sweet corn and light doughy bready flavours with mild citrus, stewed vegetal hop bitterness and faint white peach fruit.


Light grain and sweet corn with slight cut grass note.
