Slightly hazy light amber with lots of tiny "floaters", two fingers of fluffy off white head. Great head retention and spotty lacing. The aroma is spicy and herbal with some biscuit and bright, clean citrus notes. Some floral notes as well.
Biscuit and citrus collide. Citrus ultimately wins, conquering the mid palate and finish with astringent citrus peel. Overall: very enjoyable, highly recommended
