500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw/gold with a compact white head. Lots of carbonation. Nose is straw, grassy, honey, citrus, sweet bread and gooseberry. Silky smooth light mouthfeel. Subtle flavours of straw, honey, gooseberries, lovely grassy notes and some citrus zest. Nice bitter finish. Winner.

Terminus (3710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Tap at a bar in the royal mile in Edinburgh Pours bright orange hue with a nice soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is nice leafy hops dry pale malt husks. Floral notes are subtle but nice. Flavors of lite but firm grapefruit grassy malt and floral notes. Great little beer!. Long finish of lingering grapefruit dry cracker pale malt and leafy hops. Fantastic session beer.

3.3
Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 5, 2016
ASPETTO: ambrato molto chiaro, limpido. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA: intenso e gradevolissimo. Forte floreale, fruttato (soprattutto arancio), leggero erbaceo. GUSTO: all’attacco è inizialmente dolce, ma solo per un attimo, per poi far subito comparire un intenso amaro che continua nel lungo e intenso finale. Carbonizzazione medio/bassa, corpo leggero. Lascia la bocca molto secca, una birra quasi astringente. Meglio al naso che in bocca, in quanto si presenta decisamente monocorde.
