The beer in the glass is copper-colored, with snow-white foam. It smells hoppy, fruity and quite mild. Starts with a lot of CO2, hoppy, spicy, slightly fruity, slightly watery. The middle part is also hoppy-mild, subtle watery, slightly spicy. Goes into a mild spicy-hoppy, slightly fruity finish!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium off white head, which disappears slowly, on top of an almost clear orange amber colored beer.
Smell malts, caramel, herbs, some malty sweetness and a hint of grains.
Taste is nothing spectacular but it has a nice kind of malty sweetness which is mixed into a medium bitter and herby tasting beer.
The aftertaste is more bitter than the taste with some subtle autumn malty/herby flavors.
Low to medium carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.
