On tap at Hair of the Dog in Portland, Oregon.

Pours a lighter golden yellow body, one finger white head. Not much retention or lacing. Smells of grass, earth, sweet caramel, citrus, fairly bready. Slightly perfume-y. Flavour is similarly bready, a bit of caramel, mild citrus, a fair amount of grass and earth, with a slight earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly syrupy and sticky, a bit on the sweeter side on the finish. Overall, a different type of beer but not my style. Sweet and a bit perfume-y.
