Pours a vaguely cloudy pale straw (champagne-looking) with an impressive, creamy head that starts out huge and remains perfect throughout. Excellent retention; nice spots of gloppy lacing.

Beery beyond belief. Sweet lemon notes with really prevalent hop aroma (hay, grass). A bit of doughy yeast, but just enough to notice.

Pretty stanky with a big hop bite (borders on a medicinal bitterness in the back of your throat). Musty dirt flavors with a bready backbone. The malt balances the bitterness so that neither is the most prevalent flavor. Fabulous!

Pretty light body. Great carbonation. Creamy but sparkling, lingering but clean. Exactly how it should be.

Excellent beer in every way. Likely worthy of a straight five rating across the board (I like to think there is a white whale out there somewhere, though). This is what beer should be. Encompasses everything that makes us love beer (whatever its style).

Bought this in a box of 3 750ml bottles. Been eying it for a while and wanted to give it a try. Bottle conditioned and as this is the 3rd of the 3, all have been slightly different -this the most funky of the bunch. Pours dark gold, thick head fades fairly quickly. Aroma has a slightly stale moldy essence. There is a twang to it, like budweiser with corriander dryhopped. And that is exactly it -an upscale, and expensive bud that has gone bad. I dont mind a little skunk in a green bottle lager, but this was intentional and went horribly wrong. They tried to "high end" this and screwed up when it could have been a decent (and drinkable) mile golden ale. Like a homebrew experiment that failed. Never again.
