Visual: Bottle conditioned, pours pale light copper brown with a decent 1cm bubbly head, thick ringed retention, torrents of clustered CO2 streams.

Nose: soft tangy rosehip, soft citrusy malt. (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: crisp, background sour-tart

Mid-palate: puckery sour-tangy pukiness, (lvl-4-sweetness), rosehip

Finish: grainy barley malt exhale, lemon zest, tart coriander dry roughness.

Summary: Semi-interesting flavours, decent body but not particularly liking the overly aggressive pukey sour nor the palate rough finish. Mildly interesting.
