Bottle. The hops donít seem to do their job for this one. Light and malty aroma, and sweet taste. Palate is thin with low carbonation. Yellow colour with a thin head that doesnít last.

mkel07 (4540) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured amber and gold in colour with a thin white wispy head and the foam drifts to one side of the glass. Aroma of floral hops with a touch of citrus and dried fruit. Taste is okay and goes down well. Feels smooth in the mouth and would be good for a session.
