350ml can served in a little hotel glass. Dates on the bottom are 2016-08 and 2017-04, which are probably Canned On and Best By, respectively.

Pours a clear amber with a smallish head and lots of carbonation. Smell is bready, malty, sweet, maybe a little yeast. Tiny bit of honey.

Taste is surprisingly crisp and bitter. I was expecting a bready malt-bomb, and I got something quite different. Malt is present in a brief flash in the front end, and then drowned out quickly by a hoppy bitterness, seems very piney. I'd put this in a nice pilsner category, actually.

Mouthfeel is dry. Overall, not a bad beer at all.
