Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy golden, lively head. Mild lactic citric nose. Dryish with medium body and spritzy mouthfeel. Lightly grainy with freshening lemomy lactic acidity. Complex and well integrated flavours, mid bitter finish. Another great effort from one of the most iconic brewers I know of.
