Even if you aren’t into football, you have to taste this one. It’s golden with a nice head and the aroma has notes of malt, caramel and fruity hops with quite some citrus. The flavour is pleasant and smooth with notes of malt, caramel, fruit and citrus - all in all a very charming beer.

Bottled. Pale golden with a large, white head. Weak aroma of mostly hops, and caramel. Quite hoppy on the flavor, with some malt, fruit and pine. Medium to thin body and a long bitter finish. Hints of metal in the finish as well. Pleasant and quaffable, but nothing more than that. (060626)
