Nice hop nose - grassy even. Orangy color, fizzy head. Light thin malt base, broad dull hop bitter. Overall not so interesting, but one of the better ones of the current round - go figure...

Grassy citrus hops dominate a great aroma. Taste is balanced and has the flavoursome hops, however a bittering bad taste forms after a while, still very drinkable and would love to have again.
