Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle, bottled on 18th November 2016 and best before 18th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller pint glass.
Appearance: A nice clear copper colour with a one finger off white head that slowly dissipates to a nice thin creamy layer while leaving curtain like lacing.
Aroma: A bit light, but what I do get was grassy, nutty, sweet malt and hints of toffee.
Taste: Toasty biscuit malt, caramel, nuttiness with hints of orange citrus.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not my favourite style, but this is easy to drink.
