12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis - thanks!

Appearance - Copper colour with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for 2-3 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, grass

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also some wet grass/hay and some cereal notes.

Overall - Comes across a little like an oktoberfest type beer not a EIPA. An okay beer, but not really fitting of the style. I wouldn't pick this one up again.
