Bottle. Aroma of fruits, bread and hops. Unclear yellow colour with white head. Grapefruit and orange in the flavour which is dominated by the hops althoug it allows room for a breadlike taste from the malts.

hawthorne00 (2738) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit, light biscuit. Bittersweet - a little sugary with oranges and some biscuity malt, pleasant bitter finish with grapefruit, some pine and herbs. The malt side is sweet and light, but there’s enough character there to complement the bitter citrus without just being sweet. Refreshing and tasty enough.
