Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/02/2017


Hazy, golden amber with thin but retentive off-white head.


White bread crust, hay, zest orange and grapefruit, light pine and grassy hops. Faint farmyard.


Medium-bodied and slightly tart. Bready, yeasty white wine, pear and zesty grapefruit with piney hops.


Tart and dry. Bread and hay, zesty white grapefruit and pine.


Dry and slightly tart and also wonderfully refreshing. Flavours of bread and hay with yeasty white wine, pear and zesty grapefruit.
