Pours a crisp amber colour with a semi-creamy head that leaves patchy residue marks on the glass.
The aroma mainly consists of floral/grassy hops some some basic malt notes and perhaps a bit of spice. There's a nice bread aroma that cuts through this one as well, making for a relatively simple yet effective aroma.
The flavour continues on with the bread notes picked up in the aroma and expands upon it. Bread is a dominant player here, along wit ha good amount of earth flavour and the previously mentioned floral/grassy hops still hanging around aplenty. There is a nice bitter finish to each sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a definite amount of oil/slickness to it.
This one had nice flavour and balance overall. The fresh hops add a nice bitter quality to the flavour that's a bit different but good. Certainly worth a try and your time.
