Review and Tasting
Sampled on 15/03/2014
Clear, pale golden amber with thin white head.
Honeycomb with bready, yeasty notes and pine forest hops.
Honey notes are well integrated with biscuity beer flavours. Light-bodied with a crisp bite – the honey has contributes flavour but little discernible sweetness.
Pilsner lager-like finish with the merest hint of honey.
