Served in a pint glass. Pleasantly surprised- this was better than a bottled Guinness. Poured a one finger head. The smell was a very faint lemon.

The lightly carbonated mouth feel matches well with the finish: some fruit, smooth, and refreshing. A solid beer. It's a good choice-easy to drink with good character.
