Cloudy straw yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Light spicy notes of bread and fruit that is a bit different than what I was expecting. Some peach and a touch of lemon. Soft mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Pretty good.

Tastes more like a pilsner than an ale. If it was labeled a pilsner it would be decent but I was disappointed expecting a white ale.

Draft December 2014 at Dillon Whiskey Bar, Reykjavik

I'm not sure which yeast they used on this one, but forget about notes of citrus and coriander, this is all about peaches, and it's damn tasty.
Nice presentation, full yet dry body and finish, yummy soft peach flavours and aromas.
