Bottled on 09/2014. Drank side by side with East Bank. I liked the East Bank more, but would love to drink this again. Worth seeking out.

750ml Bottle received in trade with iguenard

Appearance - Gold colour with an above average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, peppery spice mix

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains, lemons and some orange/grapefruit zest. There is also quite a bit of a floral flavour.

Overall - Complex with lots of taste and a great mix of flavours. You can tell this is made of some high quality ingredients and it is well crafted. It would be nice to drink beers like this every day. World class stuff.
