Served cool from Pint can into pint glass.

A) Attractive copper colour and white foamy head that does persist.

S) Spritzy resin-like hops. Very appealing even though I am not a big hop-head.

M) Pleasantly fizzy. Consistency not really different from most beers.

T) Fairly pleasant hop-forward taste with slightly astringent aftertaste.

O) Very good, enjoyed it more than I thought I might, not being a fan of American-type hops. Maybe this one works a lot better than British imitations because the hops are balanced out by robust use of malt (which boosts the alcohol content). Will buy again if I see it.
