Lively amber colour; gentle carbonation and dense head. Aroma has hints of malt and mustiness. Rather tart flavour - not objectionable, but odd for an amber lager. I had it at Stuburags, a Lido restaurant, so there’s no excuses if it was not meant to be sour. Plus, as I said, it worked. Oranges, fruity notes, maybe faint traces of malt round things out. Refreshing.
