(sample best before 11/Sep/14) Clear (if rested & carefully poured), light-mid golden amber with thick white head which subsides to retentive snowy layer leaving light lacing.
Newly baked bread, fruity - apple, kiwi & overripe banana - hint of clove and earthy dried pine cones.
Slightly sweet maltyness balanced by clove hop spice and pink grapefruit zest. Adding the 'soul' amplifies yeasty bread and clove spice.
Long spicy, clove, zesty finish.
