Another gift from Sam Knocken who apparently has some source for out-of market beers. Cool by me!

My pour created two-plus fingers of dense, fluffy, eggshell-white head with good retention. Color was a deep coppery-amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was redolent with grassy Noble hops. Mouthfeel was medium, approaching full and the taste was both immediately grassy and then followed by a lager-like honey flavor. Yum! Finish was semi-dry with the hops and malt working well together to create a nice balance.
