Very hazy gold - amber beer. Good size bubbly cream coloured head. Light palate, semi dry with modest carbonation. Light malt, semi dry. The hops are vibrantly fruity. Lovely orange, tangerine and blood orange. Clementine and satsuma lovliness too! Mild touches of pith and lemon. Finishes soft and semi dry. Wonderful flavour, if the palate was better it would be mid 4s!
