Light half finger of mixed bubble sizes, fades into islands, minimal lacing. Fairly filmy brown amber in color, more washed out orange to yellow nearer the rims. Honeyed wheat cereal filled nose, molasses, lemondrop, additional sweetened baked goods, elevated does of malt cocoa powder, has gentle contours and an uncommon amount of sweetness. Light to medium-bodied, the steadiness of the carbonation prevents things from settling in meaningfully. Molasses, honey, carob provide a sweet profile similar to the nose, however, grains, brown bread, pumpernickel and lemon water slowly dry things to a tie race by the mid-palate. Minimal, if any, apricot to yellow apple fruit. Breadiness persists, over time draws out a golden raisin embellishment. Without real weight, thus as it nears the finish line your mouth feels like a barely filled pool. It's an interesting take but it's far enough from naive expectations to perplex some.
