Poured up on tap at Thombansen’s with a deep copper body supporting a nice looking firm dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dusty maltiness, in a good way, faint yeasty fruity esters, lightly roasted malts, a sort of candy like sweet citrus note and a wafer thin lime like sensation. The taste is smooth with malts, lightly roasted malts and thin rings of orange peel to earthy tangerine pith and lime. The hops also show up as hop bitterness that tries to defy any further description from my palate. It leaves behind modest hop bitterness as well as lightly roasted malts and a dash of biscuit malts as well as a build up of lingering sweetness. Another tasty offering.
