Cloudy golden ale with solid white head. Beautiful looking thick ale.
Great aroma of spice and light malts with a lot of yeast. Farm, hay, pepper, cloves/anise.
Taste is a lot like the smell. It's creamy and refreshing. Light. It has hints of citrus and good spice but not a lot of either. Just enough to accent and enrich the golden ale.
Very creamy. Rich and complex flavor that doesn't add up with the abv.
Serving type: on-tap

The head is nice, thick, and variegated, and of sufficient longevity. The body is transparent, with a hue of light gold or amber. Caramel or toffee dominates the aroma, perfectly complementing a similarly constituted flavor. Are there hints of fruit? Perhaps--of the full-bodied yellow variety, like ripe peach or mango; but maybe I'm influenced by the beer's color, which seems to deepen with the lowering of the angle of the sun. The texture is mostly silky, with just enough sparkle. If you're looking for something satisfyingly quaffable on the sweet side of the spectrum, you can't go wrong here.
