Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with a packaged date of 17th March 2015 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a nice clear golden colour with a light one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice stringy lacing.
Aroma: On the light side, but its sweetish corn, grassy with hints of mineral notes.
Taste: Like the aroma, taste is a little on the light side, but its mainly sweet malt, honey and corn.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: Its definitely crisp and quite nice to drink. Definitely wouldn’t mind a bottle on a hot summer day.
