From the onset this is a beer which flatters to deceive. I want to really like it and it initially looks the part but in time it just doesn't deliver.
Pours nicely retaining a reasonably foamy top on top of a light copper colour with yellow and orange highlights. There's a firm spritziness to the body and while it gives the appearance of being rugged and assertive for what it is the bitterness is pretty lean and one dimensionable. There's also the faint trace of some skinny elastic faded brown rubber bands in there as well.
Little stays with you when you finish as the aftertaste is just a tad too short and thin. I think this suffers from being a beer which, if we are honest, exists outside a clearly identifiable style.
