Dark golden with a small head. Fresh aroma with lots of lemon, and perhaps some metal? Sweet flavour with some fruity acid underneath. Refreshing, but a little sweet for my tastes.

Bottle received via trade with Koelschtrinker. Pours clear and sparkling amber with a spare, fizzy, white head, diminishing with no lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw, cereal), light hop (grass), average yeast (horse blanket) with notes of fig, currant, and candy. Light bodied, oily texture, light carbonation, and an astringent finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.
