Nice clear coppery golden colour with an even nicer, creamy, slightly off-white head. Great duration and fine lacings. Aroma is vinious, fruity, banana, apricot, bready malts and light esters. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely, good grassy hops on top of fairly crisp doughy malts. Fairly warming and with a firm bitterness in the finish. Nice.
