Fairly clear, pale yellow with a medium, foamy white head.

Fruity, sweet citrus, with subtle herbal coriander notes backed by smooth malty base. Nice balance.

Crisp, clean mouthfeel, light bodied.

Certainly an easy drinking, casual beer, but it does have some pleasant, subtle, complexities if the time is taken to appreciate them.
