Light straw color with some gold hues. White fluffy head with moderate retention.
An interest mix of aromas. Some light fruity notes mixed with gentle citrus and then deep base notes of wet mineral and sulphur. Pushing up from underneath are notes of cat pee and flint. While it might be an odd combination, it certainly wasn't boring.
A gentle bitterness is balanced nicely with the malt. While the front end shows more of the mineral, while the finish brings back the fruitiness that lingers for a bit. A light hoppyness holds it all together.
Mildly creamy on the palate with just a touch of wateriness at the edges.
A very interesting beer that has you putting your nose in the glass several times. Things were evolving, showing new facets, and developing all the way to the bottom of the glass.

3.48/5 rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Extremely clean look. Transparent very pale yellow golden color. Finger and a half of head on the pour. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.
Smell: Aromas of straw and hay hit the nose first. Sweet soft malt backbone is picked up but takes a back seat. Light tropical fruits compliment the straw tones very well.
Taste: Easy going biscuity malt front greets the drinker. That sweetness carries over into the body which adds some fruit and very mild bitterness. Bready finish that leaves a light pleasant sweetness behind.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering malt tones on the finish. Super easy drinking.
Overall: A simple yet well crafted beer. Biscuity malt is prevalent with some fruitiness to add a bit of complexity. Really easy beer to sit back, relax, and just enjoy.
