look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy gold with 1-finger medium cream head. No lace and no head retention.

Nose is rye straw and grass. A bit lemony and a touch of apricot. Intriguing.

Flavor brings in a good dose of rye malt and light, creamy apricot underneath. Velvety smooth. Nice dry finish with good resiny, earthy hops. Gets a bit floral, too, and even a tad sweet.

Feel is very smooth and quite creamy. Balances the rich malt content well.

I'd get this again.
