Tasting notes

Medium Golden, slightly hazy. Bright white head, dissipates quickly. Tropical hop aroma from the Sauvin, not to style, but quite pleasant. Smooth over the palate, mild to medium bitterness, fades rapidly.Good lacing in the glass. Almost apricot-like finish, very smooth, to the English style.6.5 ABV well hidden. Very nice medium-bodied beer. Easy drinkability .
