This is a bright, clear gold with a light orange tint. On top rests a very nice head, settling to one finger's height and dropping slowly to a strong, craggy island of beige foam that drops dense lacing from the very top of the glass that webs out from there.
A little bit of floral and herb, a light earth and slightly metallic note are present in this aroma, but it's a light one, and tough to force out.
An interesting flavor brings out the herb and some grass along with a grainy undertone and the gently sulfuric note of Noble hops. Definitely herbaceous, that becomes the cornerstone. Bitterness is sturdy if not strong, and could do more to amp up this brew, though it's certainly solid.
Light, bright and crisp, the body offers up some creaminess but is a little thin into the middle.
