Poured from 330ml bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy thick white head which gradually recedes leaving decent lacing. Color is a clear light gold with abundant streaming carbonation.
Aroma: initially a bit of skunk (green bottle), once this dissipated remaining aroma is a combination of pungent grassy hops and sweet bread dough.
Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a drying finish.
Flavor: nice combination of lightly toasted barley, a hint of caramel and toffee, strong grass hop presence as well as some bitter hops in the finish.
Overall: excellent and well done pale lager. Would like to try it from a can or on tap to see if the initial skunk is not present.
Serving type: bottle
