3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a very hazy orange, light amber with a small but persistent sandy colored head an spotty lacing. Light sweet malt aromas, fruity and a little citrusy hops. Some sweet hop flavor, but very little bitterness. A little bite at the end, but malty and smooth and fairly sweet for an extra pale

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours a golden amber colour with a white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, grassy hops and some herbal notes. Flavour of smooth and sweet malts, grassy bitterness, resin, some honey and earthiness. After a while herbal notes are much more clear. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Nice and easy. Not fresh, but still very drinkable and most importantly without off-flavours.
