I like this beer but it was way over carbonated and produced an ever growing tall white head.
Good to the taste with yeast and malts and funk and some light lemons.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This is from batch 224, bottled 11/05/13.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber and leaves several fingers of puffy white head, that linger for quite a while before slowly fading to some white layers atop the beer. (4.5)

Smell: Green apple skins, slight musty funk, white grapes, a bit of citrus zest, bready malts. This smells like the inside of those old wooden apple orchard stores that sell their fresh produce - really lovely. A smeller for sure. (4.75)

Taste: Bready, biscuity malts, some green apple, a bit of lemon zest and some light floral hops. Quite light and balanced. Refreshing. (4.25)

Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation with a medium, slightly dry body that works well with the style. Highly drinkable and nice and light. (4.25)

Overall: This one took me by surprise - really a lovely beer. Absolutely delicious aroma, with apples and appleskins taking center stage. As for the drinking, nice and light and tasty. I'll be picking more of this up to see if it's as good when fresh. (4.25)

A bottle conditioned ale so it poured a bit thick. The head stuck around for a while with this hazy beer. It had a lemony hay flavour with a slight bitterness. Out of all the beers we tried during this particular tatsing it had the lowest ABV at 4.5% but presented higher in the mouth. A great sipping beer.
