Bottle conditioned. 't Arendsnest Jan 2004. Amber gold, good rocky white head and moderate condition. Delicately hoppy on first opening with some fruity maltiness and an old and knackered yeastiness when the sediment is added. Hops disappear in the mouth, masked by the fruity malt and slight yeastiness. Lingering fruity yeast in the finish.
