33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of fruits and sweet caramel malts, some hops and faint honey hints. Flavor has orange, some mango notes, mild honey and caramel malts, resinous hops also. No corn notes here really, maybe a bit on the aftertaste. Alcohol doesn’t come through, balanced, quite nice brew actually.
