All 19 in this hop series are shared with my husband, Anton. It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, straw and fruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, flower, caramel, fruit, straw, and the finish is dry. It’s very straightforward and nice. It was the last of the series tasted over a 1 week period. jaghana (6073) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 27, 2011
