Nose
Unexpectedly peppery, citrus and light. Aromas of orange and lemon lead over softly nutty malt.
Palate
Fairly spritzy, despite its firm, malty grounding (chocolate and toffee flavours). Lively, perfumed hop notes to the fore (peppery and gently orangey). Sultanas on the swallow.
Finish
Robust roasted grain takes over, combining with hops to develop a bitter finish. Dry, with a perfumed quality.
Comment
An enjoyable chameleon beer that strangely changes its personality from stage to stage.
