12-oz bottle. Pours with a clear copper hued body and a large, lasting, just off-white head. Pretty decent retention with good lacing. Aromas are of spicy and citrusy. Lightly bready malt sweetness as well in the forefront. Floral and flowery with light esters. Medium grassy. Flavors are bready, grainy, lightly spicy with apricot notes. Notable rye rustic character. Crisp finish. Hops are strong, but mellowed by the rye and the sweetness of the malt. Hop flavors are piney and herbal. Good carbonation, medium bodied.

*Very nice mix of citrus and floral hops on a floral and nice "darker" grainy body. Great citrus in comparison to the rye. Round and deep, easy to drink, great!

imdownthepub (13557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Keg at The Firefly, Hereford. Hazy copper with off white head. There is a rich, grainy, floral note to this from the off, resinous then quite spicy in character. The hops are sharp, leafy and citric, good depth if a touch over boiled. Heavy flavours throughout. Good stuff.
