A: Clear golden color. White head with ok retention and some lace strings. Many many little rising carbonation bubbles.

S: Sweet fresh grains and citrus in the background. Smells juicy but not nessecarily with fruitiness. Very simple yet well done. Clean, crisp and super fresh.

T: Matching the smell very well, the taste is packed with fresh grains, some citrus and also peppery spice.

M: Nice smooth, swirly feeling beer. Body is on the medium side. Texture is a weee bit resinsy-dry feeling.

O: A solid choice for an outside pleasant weather beer.
