Slightly cloudy, mostly clear banana-yellow. Imagine twelve ounces of Mellow Yellow and one ounce of milk, well-stirred. Pure white wispy head of quickly-waning retention. Smells crackery, grassy. Grainy, bready palate, strangely peanut-like, but not bad. Possible yeast quality? Maybe just the malt. Different enough to be good, in my opinion. Finishes very clean. Degree of citric hopping and then almost nothing, maybe dry grass, and minimal peppercorn retro-olfaction. Light-bodied but towards medium, full of tingling and then smoothing carbonation, crisp.
