A clear and slightly pale golden colour with a large frothy head.

Grainy malt with a honey-like sweetness to it dominates the nose, with a spicy touch and an earthy note on the side and hop aroma's for refreshment as well.

The taste starts of somewhat neutral, but becomes bitter and very malty in a bit. Hops are herbal and a little minty and get plenty of room, while many shades of maltiness make themselves known and give a woody and dry, but also somewhat buttery flavour to the finish. A bitter aftertaste with the sweetness still lingering and a weak alcoholic bite follows.

A soft mouthfeel with tingling carbonation and a medium body.

A perfect execution of the style and a very enjoyable, vitalizing brew with a great taste.
