Taste; slight smokiness/roast beautifully balanced with citrus and a hint of white grapes.
A little mixed pepper and cinnamon.
There is a little tartness that clings very pleasingly to the palate.

Whilst the body feels quite full and creamy, it is perfectly balanced by the bite from a good level of carbonation  and the smoke.
The finish is quite dry!

There is a very firm bitterness that,whilst not “in your face”, does coat your gums and cheeks(inside of course).
I had thouth I may be in for more hops,but had no idea as to the age of this bottle and was quite relieved that the yeast character was not covered too much

As the beer warms,the pepperiness becomes more prominent.
Thank you very much Nitee and great job on this beer.
