Pours clear and golden with a big frothy white head. The aroma contains malts, citrus, spices, nuts and vanilla. It tastes light bitter and light sweet with an alcoholic and spicy finish. Lively carbonation but a bit light in body. An accessible drink.

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2016
Farven er gylden og skimkronen er hvid og hurtig reduceret til næsten ingenting. Aromaen er malt og karamel medens smagen er dejlige mandler og en varmende alkohol.
