Slightly bitter with a touch of wet hay. Does that sound bad? It’s actually quite refreshing with a touch of complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is hay, farmyard, earth and light fruitiness. The taste is hay, spice, dough, peppery, high bitterness, wood, some pear, melon, apple, pithy lemon and light alcohol with a very dry finish. Medium body, high carbonation and foamy mouth-feel.
