22oz bottle - assuming your product is 'premium' on the label makes you sound like cheap import lager, or God forbid, Minhas, just sayin'.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, yet bright medium golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, rocky, and creamy bone-white head, which leaves some random chunky and frilly lace around the glass as it lazily dissipates.

It smells of gritty and grainy pale malt, lemon and underripe white grapefruit rind, a hint of gasohol, and some fairly heady leafy, weedy, and mildly skunky green hop bitters. The taste is bready and crackery pale malt, a further edgy grainy cereal character, some fairly acrid lemon citrus peel, wafting petrol notes, and more sassy leafy, grassy, and somewhat estery verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite active in its swirling and probing frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and sort of smooth, as that general edginess takes more than a minor tithe here. It finishes trending dry, the crackery nature of the malt, citrus, and bitter hops all coming to the same conclusion.

Overall, this is a fairly accurately representative version of the style, all nice and crisp and old-worldly seeming. Tasty, and easy enough to drink, once my palate resets and recalibrates itself to something it hasn't seen in a long while. Good, good stuff.
