Bottle poured into beer stein

Deep honey amber with no visible carbonation. Thick white four finger foam cap slowly subsides with decent lacings on the glass.

Aroma of citrus, lemon or orange peel, and pine.

Immediate taste of hOps but not too bitter. Citrus notes. Clean with no sharp after taste.light to light medium mouthfeel. Very good and worthy of a repeat sampling.
