S: Rich, grainy, maltiness, clean grapefruit hoppiness, medium low. Very caramel. Woody notes.

L: Slightly hazy, golden amber. Creamy white head that dissipates to a ring of foam. Solid lacing.

T: Sweet caramel maltiness up front with a slightly citrus, woody hop backbone, faint. Medium woody hop bitterness into a bold, grainy maltiness. Finishes slightly hoppy, semi-dry.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Not bad, like a blond barleywine.
