Bottled on 9-17-14, poured into a shaker pint glass. Clear reddish gold color, one finger white thick head, pretty good retention and nice lace. Aroma is malty, with some light grassy notes. Taste was malty, like the aroma, with some peppery flavors and just a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel was fairly light, but very crisp, almost dry. Overall, this is a pretty nice beer, quenched my thirst very nicely.
