3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice potent caramel nose from malt and a little nice diacetyl. A touch of green apple. Light orange and clear with difficulty getting the white patch and ring on top. Biscuity and lemony malt with a nice floral finish. Moderate to strong bitterness with is appropriate and makes this beer refreshing. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish.

0.5l bottle. Almost no head at all, perhaps the beer was too cold? Nice hops and some lemon. As I am more fan of american style IPAs this tasted bit watery for me.
