Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. Pours a copper-amber color, slightly hazy, with a 3/4" off-white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing as it reduces. A "best by" stamp indicates this should be consumed by 8/29/12. The bottle promises, "At the end of every glass you will discover how this pale ale got its name."
Has a grassy, honey aroma, with orange blossom, hints of bitter hops, white grapefruit, and husked wheat.
Thin malt, lemon-herb, fresh grass, hints of tobacco, and a fair amount of oak leaf combine with a hopped-finish that is dry and bitter.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, starting soft, and finishing with a dry tang on the tongue that intensifies as I get further into this brew.
A decent pale-ale, is a little more herby and lemony than I prefer. It's almost like this is a saison-APA mix, at perhaps 20/80, but enough to give it that farmhouse quality. Worth a try, but not one I'll search out again.
