Backlog rating. 50cl bottle from trade thanks to McNeill. It pours a hazy straw color with a s large white head.

Taste is medium dry and lightly bitter and grassy, with more citrusy hops, notes of ripe apricots, esters, black pepper, bread dough, grapefruit. Finishes lightly estery and quite dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very tasty, but the original homebrew recipe had more yeast prominence
