Poured from a 35cL bottle into a tulip. Served chilled. Bottle marked best before 02/08/12

Pours a beautiful amber gold color. Fluffy two finger head, decent retention, head leaves a nice bit of lacing on the way down.

Nice hop smell, citrus and pine. Solid amount of malt in the nose too.

Pine, grass and citrus hops cutting through a well balanced, mild malt flavor. Just the right amount of bitterness and sweetness.

Great amount of carbonation, just the right body for the taste.

Great sessionable beer. I've been on a stout and Belgian kick lately, this is a welcome beer to break what may have otherwise become monotonous.
