Reviewed from notes.

Pours out an orangish-golden color with light amounts of hazing and a two finger head that lasts for about a minute and a half, leaving behind minimal lacing on the glass. Medium body and carbonation levels, with a touch of crispness to the texture.

Smells of light cereal graininess and a touch of herbal hopping, that's about it for the nose. The flavor is a bit stronger : I get a biscuit sort of malt tinged with a bit of sulphur, plenty of grassy, herbal, and hay hopping with an earthen / light apple skin garnish on the finish. Drinks easy, yet complex enough to be a sipper if you want it to be.

Serving type: bottle
