500ml brown bottle. Deep golden-orange pour, clear. Big off white head. Nose has some sweet citrus, orangey. Taste has some malt sweetness, some hop fruitiness. Finishes with orange and grapefruity notes, trace of resin and some Nelson Sauvin character lingers as well. Dry end, grainy note, balanced bitterness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very drinkable with a nice hop blend.

Grasiger, nass hopfiger Antrunk. Trocken erdige Noten, frischer Hopfen kommt dagegen weniger stark hervor. Recht süffig. OK. 9/8/9/8/9/8

Solid pale ale, but I do prefer their fantastic pils. Well made, tight not overtly hoppy. Reminds me of a ever so slightly hoppier SNPA in composition and robustness.
