On tap at GBBF 05. I can’t believe I haven’t rated this previously - I only made notes just in case. Good Golden beer. Some nice light hoppiness and nectar in the falvour and mouthfeel. Great balance, enticing flavours. Good stuff all round - you could drink this happily under any circumstances.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Huge off white light fluffy head. Citric, hoppy and light sour aroma. Flavour has caramel, herbs, light fruit and a fresh citrus undertone. Is quite thin bodied and watery. Ends on a sweetish flowery note. Quite refreshing. Thanks Jens.
