Absolutely love the complexity of both malt and hop driven characters in this beer. Easy drinking without being boring.

Niksko (314) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Nose is tropical and fruity, with pineapple, strawberry and some sweet malts. Taste is sweet, slightly hop bitter and a bit of a biscuit finish. Smells better than it tastes, but still a pretty solid beer.
