Color naranja, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Herbal, resinosa, ligeramente frutal en nariz. En boca hay malta caramelizada, pan, toques herbales, resina y ligeros cítricos. Final de amargor medio que se acentúa ligeramente en postgusto. Demasiado old school para mí.

I got this in a trade with russpowell. Thanks Russ!
Nice hazy orange gold colour with a good 2 finger head of foam. Some good lacing and the head retention is excellent.
The smell has notes of grapefruit, caramel, and a lot of fruitiness. I get pears and apricots. Nice inviting nose.
The taste is very strong in the hop department...grapefruit and grass mostly but the malt is there as well with lots of honey and some caramel and the fruit is just as noticeable in the taste as it was in the smell. Again, pears and apricots. Good medium body here and it finishes with some bitterness and it has a long lasting aftertaste.
This is a nice tasty example of the style that somehow manages to get the 2 fruit flavours in and it works. It's definitely not a session ale as I get some warming from the 7.5%abv but it *is* pretty easy drinking. Good stuff!
