Had on tap at Founders. Served in a nonic pint.

A: Pours a dark amber color with some clear brown highlights to it. A white head forms on the pour and recedes to thin cap. Sticky white lace is left down the glass.

S: Light citrus hops with a caramel malt sweetness. Some sweetened biscuit malt with subtle grassy nature with a touch of dankness.

T: The taste pretty much follows the nose. Very sweet caramel malt backbone with a little cereal grain as well. Nice bursts of citrus hops with with some background dankness to it and minimal grassy notes.

M: Light bodied and very easy drinking. Medium low carbonation with a dry finish.

O: Very solid and drinkable beer. Nice balance of hops and malty sweetness. I'd definitely knock back a few pints of this.
