Gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Malt dominant aroma, but a good amount of grassy and spicy herbal hops are in there too. A bit of sulfur (in a good way), and perhaps a hint of citrus as well. In the mouth it's more bready malts going forward with some green Hallertau hops. Grassy Saaz notes round things out on the somewhat dry finish. This strong bready malt character seems to be the signature of this brewery, and it's definitely present here. There's a good amount of hop character in terms of aroma, flavor, and bitterness, but it seems to struggle a bit to show itself through the specialty malts. A good crowd pleasing beer, but I wish it was a little leaner.
