Imbibed at Harry's Hofbrau SJ on 8/2/13.

Pours a very pale gold with a wispy white head that laces decently. Lots of pine with a little funk/skunk, the malt also comes out in biscuity English barley. The flavor mild, as to be expected. Very creamy in flavor with white bread toast and a healthy dose of nuttiness (mostly cashew). I also get some sweetness and tart from the yeast simultaneously, making an intriguing flavor. The finish is hoppy and bitter, but not overwhelming. Mostly Earthy, reminding me of a Bitter, maybe Kent Goldings, with a slight hint of citrus to go along with the nectar flowery finish.

This reminds me more of a dry hopped English Bitter, but its still good (not fabulous).
