Bottle, 75cl corked. A well-retained white head of two-finger size sits on top of a clear, golden body. There’s lots of lovely piney and resiny hops on the nose, some hints of white pepper and a whiff of flowers. A pleasant scent of pale malts in the back, with some biscuity notes. It’s dry and full bodied, with a quite high but pleasant level of carbonation. Perhaps a tad too bitter, but the pale malts deals nicely with it. Resins, some grass and a touch of pine cones. There’s a faint touch of white sugar here as well, but that’s left in the remote background, just to remind us of its origin. It might be a bit challenging to finish a bottle without sharing, but it’s definitely a fine brew. Hope this one will be brewed at a regular basis. 140118
