500ml bottle. It poured a nice light amber with good carbonation and the merest trace of an off-white head. The aroma was promising; citrus notes of fresh orange.
The taste was clean and crisp. An orange led burst of flavour develops tangerine notes over a balanced malt backbone and finishes tart and dry.
Despite the temptation to serve this cooler, I would let it warm up to fully appreciate its balanced nature.
An excellent little effort that shows it is possible to bottle-condition lower strength beers and still maintain a depth of flavour.
