Deep amber color, clean. Off-white foam, one finger.
In the smell strong hoppy notes, grassy, citrussy and resinous. A well balanced mix, elegant.
Again in the mouth, where the maltiness is more present, it remains well balanced and easily drinkable.
In the aftertaste, the peristence of resinous and citric notes is quite long, even if not too intense.
Beer to drink and drink again.
