Can, thanks to fonefan. It pours a clear, copper body and a small, lasting, off-white head. The aroma has a distinct bubblegum and banana aroma, more or less like a German hefe-weizen. Quite weak though, and with a pleasant hoppyness in the far back. The hops are quite present in the flavor, but that’s just because the malts and yeast are quite subdued. Bubblegum, banana and some caramel too. Notes of apricot? Medium to thin on the palate, quite metallic in the end. Very boring, but quite drinkable. 101027

Can, 4%. Slightly metallic aroma. Clear dark copper colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is mildly caramelly with a weak hop note. Clean. Fizzy. A lot better than expected.
