Very, very light color for the style with a golden color and good carbonation. Some decent lacing but not very special.
Hoppy bitterness up front, this drinks and looks very much like a decent Pilsner. Very, very odd indeed in terms of the style.
Peppery bitterness in the nose and reflected in the taste.
Finishes rather dry with a hop twang.
Don’t really understand this as an ESB, but there you go. EDIT: Changed from ESB category on 2/4/06.
