Nice to give such an apparently seminal beer a go.

Pours a light orange with good head/lacing.

Smell is of nice clean malt. Zesty orange marmalade. A little green apple.

Taste is more of the same clean orangey marmalade malt characters. As it warms I get more of a hop bite.

Mouthfeel is fairly palate coating yet crisp and readily cleanses itself from the palate upon the swallow.

Solid beer, holds up well in spite of its "classic" (and potentially outdated) status.

Serving type: bottle
