Nose
Fruity – from both esters and hops. There's a lightly perfumed citrus-orange accent, plus a faint chocolate note from the malt. The hops are sappy and soon take over.
Palate
Sappy, earthy hops bring a dry note to an otherwise floral, fragrant, estery, bittersweet beer. Subtle lemon flavours hover in the background.
Finish
Dry and lipsmackingly hoppy; long lasting and nicely bitter.
Comment
Gloriously hoppy in the Holt style, this bottle-conditioned beer features Pioneer hops.
