Cloudy, orangey amber. What little head there is quickly disappears without trace. (Yeasty sediment in base of bottle).
Banana skin and cloves with faint lemon zestyness, hops and a dusting of pepper.
Spicy (clove) banana palate with zesty lemon citrus, yeast and enlivening cracked red pepper corns.
Subtle clove lingers with pink grapefruit zest and pita bread.
