A - light orange with rich frothy head
S - obvious noble hops with grass but also a bit of tangerine and then slight pilsner malt sweetness
T - this was much better out of a good clean tap - I'm picking up wonderful tangerine, orange, that type of citrus note. More on the dry side but the hops help make that perception. Finishes with the trademark noble hop bitterness which is bittersweet. This year is better than I remember it being. I enjoyed the tangerine citrus flavor.
M - Dry and good grainy pilsner texture. rather full - almost like a slight wheat but that's just an impression.
D - rather good. I found myself surprised by this year's batch since I found last year's to be sub-par.

3.73/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance- Poured from a 355ml bottle into a nonic pint glass, best before Dec 14. Golden yellow with loose white head which quickly dissipates. No lacing left on the glass.
Smell- Fresh hops with a zesty pine aroma.
Taste- Toffee malt up front quickly overtaken by fresh bitter hops that leave lemon pine flavours on the tongue. Good length.
Mouthfeel- Good mouthfeel with creaminess on the tongue .
Overall- A refreshing beer with a well balanced taste. The hops are flavoursome without being overpowering and linger on the palate.

Brilliantly clear golden with a foamy, thin layer of white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, with a floral bent and a touch of earthy minerals. Malt sweetness seems dominant. Flavor is lemony and minerally upfront, finishing earthy and lightly bitter. There's a bit of malt sweetness at the backbone, finishing crackery and dry. Very easy drinking, approachable beer with a balanced malt and hop profile.
