Pours an almost clear, opaque deep straw, producing barely a finger of frothy, white, shortlived head that leaves only a thin wash & collar ring of lace. Aroma is weak & thin: light cracker malt with notes of grass, apples & maybe a little yeast. Taste is more substantial: sourdough bready, grain & biscuit malt, apple sauce & lemon & grass hints in a dry finish that yields a pale malt, hop bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, moderately carbonated, crisp, prickle & dry. Overall a mediocre effort.
