Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney, but not too fruity. Actually something unpleasant in there. Taste is similar, weird mixture between malts and hops, and something very off. Boozy finish and a bit metallic. Disappointing.

Pours from the bottle a lovely clear copper with a fast fading head that leaves spotty lacing.
Aroma is nice. Herbal and spicy, some caramel and biscuit, a bit of fruit and just a hint of veg.
Taste is nicely bitter with herbal and spice notes. A little floral with fruity undertones. Some biscuit and toffee sweetness as well.
Mouthfeel is medium and smooth.
Quite tasty.
