3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle opened at the Lahore Kebab House.
Very clean gold with a reasonable white head and lace. Lovely crisp hoppy snout with plenty of grassy notes and some good earthy malt in the background. The flavour is virtually identical. Really crisp grassy hops with some faint citrus and a pleasing dry bitter finish. Nice carbonation levels give it a good mouthfeel and goes well with the dryness. A crisp, refreshing and well made brew.
