Pour into a brandy glass (no I don’t have a glass for each brewery). Large fluffy head about 3 inches that dissipates well at room temp 65F to a thin layer. Smells like daisies, herbs, honey…mead, lemongrass. It looks golden, golden ale, see through, like if the rivers were made of gold, it should look like this. Tastes like what an amazing beer should taste like. An explosion of flavors, medium carbonation then low at room temp. A balance of flavor and alcohol. Not a lot of bitterness. An aftertaste that makes you want more. Win
