Mostly clear amber colour with a small, off-white head. Poor head retention.

Somewhat metallic, vegetal aroma. Touches of herbal earthiness. Malt seems lacking.

Very light malt that doesn't pop. Sharp edge from the carbonation and some bitterness. A little DMS.

Medium-light body with moderately-high carbonation. Okay.

A disappointing beer. It isn't refined with the hops dominating an overattenuated malt base. This isn't a bitter let along a "proper" one.
