Bottle at home in London with Lyoli on NYE. Pours perfectly clear, bright gold with a tight, creamy white head. Engaging, doughy malt nose, hints of tangy citrus, lemon, hay. Light sweet flavor, dry dough and straw, hints of buttery biscuits, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Faint dry finish, more pale dough, light bitter straw, some white sugar. Not bad, though quite pedestrian.
