Lovely malted in both the nose and mouth. Mostly dry taste which is dominated by caramel and fine hoppy bitterness to follow. It is very complex and at the same time easy to drink. It would just be a shame to drink it too fast for its nuances make the treat worthy.

Very grassy aroma and a lovely golden colour.
Not all that bitter, but a nice mix of hops and malt. A touch sweet, but not overpowering.
Very easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500ml. Aroma is a faint malt and honey. It pours a light amber body with a thin white head that all but disappears leaving the smallest residue. It starts slightly citrusy but this fades quickly into malt with a hint of honey. It finishes with a slightly dry bitter palate. A reasonable beer but it just doesnt have enough character.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a light amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is hoppy and buttery leading to a medium bitter, grassy, slightly malty flavour with some citrus notes on the palate and a nice lingering bitterness. I like this beer. The hop combination works well. It’s not packed full of flavour, but it’s smooth, balanced and when served cool, it’s a super refreshing summer beer.
