On tap at the brewery.

Medium amber in color, clear, with a thin white head that held at a ringlet, dotting the glass with lace. Aroma of biscuity malts, herbal hops, ammonia. This kind of fell apart for me in the taste department. Herbal hop notes soon gave way to an uncomfortable soapiness, hints of ammonia, overlaid on a biscuity malt base. The off-flavors dominated, unfortunately. Body was light-medium, mouthfeel was crisp, but again, kind of off and awkward, making it something I probably wouldn't go back for again, especially considering this was fresh from the source.
