Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5% Light amber colour on a clear body, with a big soapy head, off-white in colour, with good retention. Spots of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is light caramel, fruits, sugar. Nice taste with a touch of lemon-like citrus, making it extra refreshing. Caramel, malts, maybe even some liquorice as the description says. Medium body, high carbonation. Mildly dry palate. Overall a nice beer, big thirst-quencher.
