Swingtop bottle on this one in 473 ml.
Poured a substantial frothed head. Left a good lace and retained very well. It's a clear orange-gold.
Smells of banana, grain, a bit of skunk there, and extremely subtle hops that emerge as the dominant scent with warming.
Light mouthfeel, somewhat slick and coating.
Vague sweetness with a pinching bitter copper. The aftertaste is slightly more coffee and salt with--I'm not kidding--the taste of envelope glue. A lingering aftertaste that emphasizes the bitter qualities. This is what disappoints me most--the bitter is nice, but the sweet that begins is so faint that it strikes me as unbalanced. Not bad, not great. Just sort of lingering in the middle precariously.
