Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized good lasting and lacing beige head. Fairly hoppy with flowery and citrus notes. Light wooden. Malt provides flavours of dark bread and roasted malt. Light/medium body, gentle carbonation, pleasant bitterness into the finish gives it just the bite it needs not to feel thin. Flavourful and pleasant. Well done.
