Pours a lovely golden Amber. Citrus hops and grains in the aroma. Bready and biscuity taste along with citrus fruit; an excellent balance. Good hops profile as well as yeast. Slightly dry finish with a slightly puckering feel. Medium bodied and smooth. So crisp, refreshing and drinkable. A truly outstanding classic. So flavorful. A staple in my fridge.

A: Clear light copper body. Nice bubbly off-white head.
S: Orange marmalade.
T: Not a whole lot of malt but it's nice and crisp. Getting a general impression of citrus and some orange marmalade. Bitter and an incy bit lager-like. Fairly dry. Towards the end it gets a bit funky, an off flavour that always reminds me of cottage cheese. Something to to with the yeast I think.
M: Not overly fizzy.
O: Nothing to write home about.
