Bottle. Golden straw. Medium frothy head.
Light citrus fruit and malt on the nose.
Demerara malt and grassy hops in the taste. Mild butterscotch and a bit of green tea. A nice bitter finish.
Medium body. Low carbonation.
Rather tasty.

Blonde beer with greenish highlights. It has a white foam, decent to be tapped directly from cask.
At the smell you can feel a good mandarin, slightly orange, all on a malty and sweety base. Even in the mouth you can perceive the same notes, with bitter due to hops, more present and persistent. In the aftertaste it confirms an initial malt light and relatively smooth, followed by a citrus and spicy effect that lingers long.
At the second sip brings out more clearly hints of orange marmalade, tea leaves and zesty pepper, typical of the English style. Beer recommended.
