Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is light brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs), with hints of black tea and earth.

Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation.
Solid stuff...it plays it safe for the most part, but it’s quite clean and enjoyable.

500mL thanks to Ruben. Pours a clear amber, honey highlights. Denser yellowish head. Rocky with great retention. Nose is a bit diacetyl, toffee malt. Taste is heavier diacetyl with some sharp grassy hops, honey malt, sweeter fruit juice. Not bad. Clean and refresh. Decent hop balance. Not too bad on the diacetyl. Light nuttiness. Not bad. Small butteriness with fruit juice and mealy apple.
