Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Yespr]
Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow. Nice stream of small bubbles reach from the centre of my glass towards an incredibly great frothy white head that leaves great blothy lacings on my glass. Aroma is lightly sweet, malty and subdued, but present herbs. Mouthfeel is crisp and light, but never thin. Flavour is initially a bit sweet, bút the herbal and spicy notes hit me well into the aftertaste. Super drinkability, only flaw may be a bit too much sweetness.
