Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Fergus. Light haze on this amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Airy malt, mildly tangy. Floralness that develops bitterness. Little citric peel. Some malty creamy sweetness emerges before a floral dry finish. Passable.

Bottle thanks to Fergoos at level 42. It pours clear copper with a Haick off - white head. The aroma is bread, little bit sweaty, cereal, grain and a bit of toffee. The taste is dry, weak bitterness, soda water, wood, leather, citrus rinse, straw and cereal with a dry finish. Light body and high, foamy carbonation. Pretty wishy washy.
