I tried this at Taylor brewing company after being less than impressed with one of their brews.
A - Slightly hazy and yellow with a nice creamy white head. This doesn't really look all that impressive.
S - Nice and yeasty with some grassy hops and honeyed malts. This one is pretty dang sweet, but balanced with a hint of EtOH and those outdoorsy hops.
T - Yeasty and doughy with some nice sweet honey flavors. Tasty!
M - Full bodied ...almost to the point of being foamy. Moderately carbonated with a hoppy and slightly dry finish. The aftertaste leaves lots of really doughy yeasty flavors hanging around.
D - Damn fine beer, but not one of the best BPA's out there. I'd definitely drink this again.

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
