Nose: chamomile honeyed malts, with a bit of lemon; bright, sweet, and aromatic. (9/10-pungency)
Attack: foamy-creamy, sweet honey
Mid-palate: (8/10)-honeyed sweetness, (MAIN) honey, chamomile (floral/tea), citrus malts, lemon
Finish: malty exhale, light-med subtle soft hoppy bitterness, malty-sweet finish.
Summary: This is beer is super crisp and smooth straight out of the fridge and into a chilled glass at sub 10°C, and noticeably heavier/sweeter as it warms. A balanced and competent brew.
