Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon juice, lime zest.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Smells pretty nice, but ends up being quite sour (as portended by the sour citrus fruit nose) and thin/watery in the mouth. Odd and a little scatterbrained.

Hazy golden body with a rich tan head. Aroma of honey, apricots, apples and caramel. Medium-bodied; Nice rich malt flavour with a good sweet kick, some mild hops and a herbal and floral note.
