4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a perfect golden amber with apparent carbonation and a white head that subsides fairly quickly. Aromas of oranges, herbal grassiness, soft breadiness and caramel malt. Tempting.
Initially sweet but then thereís a rush of orangey bitterness, tangy hoppy spruce, ginger and roastiness. So much to like about this beer.
