Served in an imperial pint glass at the Palatine brewpub.

I had no idea there was a PGA event in Thailand... Anyway, this stuff pours a chill-hazed brass-amber topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted biscuit, mild toffee, and grass. The taste brings in more of the same, though the toasted-ness is reined-in a good deal, and the grass is accentuated. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a very dry finish. Overall, I though this a meek alt, though one that's still not altogether offensive.
