Clear light golden colour with a big, creamy white head. Good head retention.

Moderate pilsner malt and spicy, noble hop aroma with some light, playful alcohol. Mild fruitiness. Very nice.

The flavour is a little odd with it being obvious that it is a lager but with a number of esters generated including some light apple and stonefruit notes. There is a touch of spicy alcohol as well as some noble hop flavour.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

To my mind this is an excellent beer with a nice flavour. The fruitiness is a little bit out of "style" but the overall profile is quite enjoyable.
