Nice clear golden pour, decent white head that doesn't last for long, but leaves lots of traces on the glass and some lacing.
They say it has 10 different hops from all around the world, but the first thing i smell is metal, with a truly "lagery" feel to it. Malts with a bit of corn, some faint peach and orange, hint of honey. Pretty toned down.
Taste starts with sweet malts, white bread, some honey and a touch of orchard fruit, a bit of sweet and crisp citrus follows (bit of bitter peel too). Spicy green hops in the finish (definitely something of the German variety) create a more than mild bitterness, with a low metallic note that doesn't ruin the beer tho.
Light body, medium carbonation, pretty clean aftertaste with some lingering hops and a bit of malty sweetness.
Refreshing and pairs well with Italian food, but doesn't showcase the "10 hops" and doesn't really explain its somewhat pricey fanciness.
