Hazy gold beer, good fluffy white head. Palate is light and slightly soft. Fine carbonation. Light airy creamy malt. Good hops, pretty bitter too - yellow grapefruit and grapefruit pith. Trace of floral pine, but the bitter grapefruit dominates. Finishes smooth with a long bitter linger. No Mallinsons soap in this one!
