0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Very light colour but with a big head. This is not a dead beer but a living thing so be prepared when you open the bottle. Donít shake it. Taste is very light but malty. Nice one.

Aroma is quite fruity with hops, gooseberry bush and birch leaves. Also a slight English feeling with toffee. Flavour has hops, some gooseberry bush and grapefruit. Finishes dry and leathery with hay. Good, and made me even forgot that ABV is only 3,8%.
