The look of urnitation that a cloud settled in. Or in other words a pale straw yellow, with an unfiltered look. White frothy head with good retention.

Very distinct aromas. Pleasant smelling. Floral happening with lemon, and earthy yeasty appeal. Hints of malt lye underneath. Everything seems in harmony with each other.

Very yeasty but with a great malt backbone. Full mouthfeel yet simple and thin. Not overly carbonated with a dose of lemon on the mid palate and finish. Floral earthy flavors linger on the finish. This beer really surprised me. Seeing it's the only pub exclusive (until BA Blackout tomorrow) this is a treat. Luckily it's a cool 75 which makes this beer even that much more appetizing.

Serving type: on-tap
