2012 vintage, 500ml bottle into a tulip appears muddy brown with a khaki head that fades leaving spotty lace.

Aroma of minerals, citrus, earth and alcohol. This feels like it might have been quite hoppy at one time but its quite faded leaving a peculiar fruited character that masks the malt a bit.

Taste has some caramel malt sweetness, citrus, herbs and earthy almost musty grain that lingers with a faded hop bitterness mingled with alcohol.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Its an alright brew.
