sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2010
500ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden with a mostly lasting, loose white head. Crisp, zesty lemon hop aromas. A bit one dimensional in that respect. Light & lemony, a bit of lime sharpness and a grassy finish. A noticeable English earthy hoppiness in general. Light body, light to medium carbonation and short to medium length finish.
