3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusty dry hazy lemon yellow colour with a HUGE white fluffy head and plenty of carbonation. Just a touch of chunky sediment that accidentally made it into the glass (Iíll take the extra flavour thank you very much).
The aromas, based in those herbs, make the beer smell of floor cleaner. This isnít a fault, it is a side effect. I quite like it. Thereís plenty of earthy herb and citrus fragrance. It smells fresh. Flavours are tasty, lemon citrus, sage (although I know it isnít there), earthy, dusty curry grinds. Thereís a good amount of carbonation that keeps things lively in the mouth. The finish is a little bit shorter than I was expecting, however, thereís plenty of sherbet finish. Tasty though and a nice quenching afternoon snooze-inducer.
