3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (exp 9/14) from Enoteca Sileno, Lygon St, Melbourne. Pours unfiltered golden-amber with short lasting white head that stabilises to a firm layer providing a scanty lace. Nose has notes of rye bread, honey, vanilla spice and orangey citrus. Not much hop presence. Palate is medium sweet with lightish texture, body and carbonation making for easy drinkability. Mild dry bitter finish. Quite delicate and refreshing.
