A very clear, pale golden-yellow, it does look like a blonde. The head is about half a finger tall, pure white, and densely bubbled. It leaves behind more than a modicum of spotting that clumps up to patching in areas.
It's a little grainy on the nose, pale malts and toast in there along with tangy and sweet fruitiness, a bit of spiciness and some leaf.
It's a little stronger in the taste and not quite as grainy. The main takeaway for me is lots of fruity esters, pale fruits flesh with a hint of something not quite plummy. Biscuit and leaf meld together pretty well.
It's light, very crisp, and creamy in the carbonation. It could be a little cleaner in the feel from the grains, and it dries a little early,
Serving type: on-tap
