Had this one plenty before, but finally getting around to reviewing it. 500 mL foil-wrapped bottle into a tulip glass.
A moderate pour yields a caramel colored body that is not as translucent as anticipated. A finger-wide head comprised of eggshell white bubbles adorns the surface; retention and lacing seem a bit lacking. The aroma is of wheat, straw, grass, and some grains that, while don’t seem roasted, do seem to have been “warmed” in some way. Some faint lemon and malt dropped in as well. The flavor follows suit, with an emphasis on the wheat, grass, and straw notes. Some caramel mixes well with the muddled grains, while some lemon pulls through towards the rear. Mouthfeel is crisp and finishes clean. The consistency is thinner than the color of the body may suggest, but it lacks not in flavor. Overall, a great beer. Not particularly rare or sought after these days, but one that is certainly worthy of revisiting any time.
