Bottle. Pour is as others. Aroma is far more subtle and floral than the others with faint notes of yeast and a light spiciness. I think its just more subtle and the malt comes through more. Flavor is also very floral with notes of spice and faint chamomile. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brownish orange with red tones.Frothy thin head good lacing.Floaties.
Aroma of carmel malts,bready pastry,sweet light spice and vanilla candied orangish taffy.
Taste is about mirror as aroma with a citrus lemon spice ending pretty zesty, but not puckering or rhindy mildly refined but pleasant.And of course the carmel pastry malt backbone this series has.
Overall its a nice mellow mild lemony hop flavor just enough tartness to be lemon but stops before it starts being too lemon tart. Cuts through the carmel pastry in the finish,balanced well.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours golden amber with a little sediment and a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is herbs, flowers, nuts. Flavour is a lot like the aroma with a dry finish.
