3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is of sweet mandarin citrus, green herbs, flowers, dry honey, spicy bread, syrup, dough, nutshells, canned fruits, mild strawberry ice cream and light caramel. Lots of subtle aromas, yet surprisingly simple on the nose. Soft hops alongside a clean, crystal and tiny roasted malt profile. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of bitter herbs, citrus peel, bread, nutshells, fruits, flowers and light dough. The flavour is clean, almost hard with a light papery touch. Medium carbonation. Floral, citric and cookie-like finish. Light to medium bodied. Ok, not fantastic.
