Draft poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a dark yellow gold color with snow white head that grows into large bubbles.

S: Smells very light with just a tiny bit of hoppiness and possibly some light colored dry malt, but nothing else, really. Supposedly it’s dry hopped, but I can’t tell.

T/M: The taste is equally light; a bit earthy, a bit tinny, and a bit hoppy but nothing real discernable. Some dry, biscuit malt forms the backbone.

This is a decent session beer but doesn’t exceed any expectations.

Served to me in a specially shaped pint glass (circular ring protruding an inch down from the rim).

A - Cloudy and yellow, fluffy thick head at the top, about one finger deep. Can't see through this at all, in the dark it looks almost like orange juice.

S - Some subtle hops and musty malt aroma. A little bready, citris comes through on the nose as well.

T - Well, definately tastes like an old-school beer that's been made in a barrell. Very creamy and bready, hops are more subtle than I anticipated. Can taste the citris, but it's not overpowering. Can tell this is an unfiltered beer.

M - Creamy, full, minimal carbonation, which would make sense as this is naturally carbonated.

D - Easy enough to drink, but the creamyness of this one makes it a little heavy and filling for me.
