Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear golden with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale cream head. Fruity aroma has notes of banana, pear and tangerine plus a subtle malty tone. Rich & fruity flavor delights the taste buds with banana and pear notes plus hints of tangerine and butterscotch. Texture has firm body and plenty of fizz. Waltz with this Matilda!
