21st October 2014
Lightly hazy gold beer, residual white head. Palate is semi dry and crisp. Very light malts, dry. Hops are a dry pithy orange with a little yellow grapefruit and peel in the background. A subtle but definite peppermint rides throughout giving the beer an unusual slant. Light dry finish. Peel bitter linger. Not bad!
