A soft bitter beer with a short and pleasant post bitterness. An acid note makes the beer thirst-quenching and reveals a warm aftertaste. This beer imparts a malty aroma as well as aromas of cereal, baked bread, and biscuit. The flavor is fruity, floral, and even slightly herbal.
Glass: Goblet glass
Temperature: 4 - 8°C
