Pours a rich translucent golden colour. Head is dense and slightly off white. Okay head retention.
Aromas are of light hops, quite sweet and almost a touch fruity.
Starts sweet and continues with a reasonable bitterness with a light hop character. Plenty of biscuity malt notes to counter the slightly spicy hops. Nothing amazing but tasty enough. Quite a dry finish.
The carbonation is here is quite high which nicely counters the medium body. It may be a touch too carbonated but it isn't bad.
I nicely flavoured, tasty lager which hits the spot when you want something that isn't particularly challenging.
