Writing as I drink.

Poured a 330ml bottle into a 350ml beer glass. Poured a nice coppery brown with a good fluffy off-white/beige head. Fetaind quite well. Some lacing.

Nice nose. Lots of biscuit, malty aromas, caramel.

Palate is OK. MIld hop bitterness and fairly well balanced.

Mouth is a little thin. Carbonation quite high.

Recommended for fans of the style.

There is some citrus and pine in the aroma at first. As those soften and fade, some breadiness, toffee, and nuts become more apparent. The head is cream colored and the body a coppery amber. In the flavor, the hops are fairly light—some pine and grapefruit that tastes a little watered down. The malt is considerable but still secondary to the hops and fruity esters. Only somewhat bitter. A good earthy, grainy maltiness lingers. The body is on the light side with spritzy carbonation.

The balance of flavors seems rather off for the style. It's not very malty or bitter; and the hops and esters, while quite noticeable, are still rather light. Very drinkable and pleasant.
