(500 ml bottle) Pours a clear, light amber beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a frothy white head. Malty aroma of cereal and maize, with skunky cabbage, caramel, iron, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, a bit earthy, but also thin, fizzy, and watery.
Not a great beer - a bit of a dud. The clear glass bottle certainly hasn’t helped the beer stay fresh.
