Review and Tasting

Sampled on 28/10/2012


(best before 28-Mar-13) Clear but with slight chill haze, golden amber with medium ivory coloured head.


Buttery biscuits (reminiscent of cheesecake base), floral grassy hops with subtle grapefruit zest.


Pronounced pine and grapefruit hop bitterness over bready malty base.


Grassy hop finish with lingering metallic bitterness.
