Golden glow to look at with a good thick dense just off white constant. The amarillo and perle hops are pretty recognisable in the mouth and on the nose. A bit of malt from the very onset supports a good fairly full bitter intensity. The mouth feel and aftertaste is superbly long, lingering and satisfying.
