The addition of lemon juice brings a tartness to the mix, balancing the sweetness imparted by the sugar syrup. Tapping into the tradition of a Dutch "kopstootje" or "little headbutt," which typically pairs a beer with a shot of jenever, this cocktail offers a similar experience with a more sophisticated, blended taste. Served in a highball glass, this concoction is a delightful fusion of herbal, citrus, and sweet notes with an underlying beer crispness, making it a refreshing choice for those who appreciate complex, layered beverages.
