Bottle - Many thanks to Sebastian (DerDoppelbock) for trading!
Lightly hazy, deep golden body. White head, diminishes totally. Hoppy aroma with some citrus. Moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavour. Has some guts in it, but still not very well balanced. I like that it’s not usual, but I don’t like the flavour very much.
