4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy light copper colour with a good white head. Aroma of apricot, grass and some floral notes at the end. Caramel, peach, apricot and honey makes a good balanced taste. Really refreshing. Easy to drink, yet composed by quite a few different flavours. Soft carbonation, which makes the different tastes shine better through. Low bittermess for a pale ale, but this is the way I like it. Overall this was a fantastic beer.
