Bottle. Pours a clear, light amber with a bubbly head.Pine and citrus hop nose, with some caramel malts. Nice and sweet, malty with caramel and perhaps hints of honey. The bitterness is quite citrusy. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly well balanced finish with more caramel and honey sweetness, then some citrus hops with light stickiness. Really good.
