12 oz bottle poured hard into a nonic.
Golden color, not that pisswater yellow but a deeper golden transparent. Head billows up and recedes rather quickly. No lace show and minimal ring around the collar head remains.
Husky grain, touch of lemon and sourdough bread with grassy hops in aroma.
Feel is crisp and mildly slick.
Husked grains to start with more bready sourdough funk and light lemon tartness. A touch of fermented sugars drying it into the finish with lingering spicy herbal hops.
A fuller body than I'm used to for the style but the drying finish and bold earthy hops lingering after the swallow are what keep me coming back for more.
Great for the heat wave we are currently stuck in. As this is refreshing, yet full flavored.
