A - Golden, clear, with a huge head of white that reduces slowly. No real lacing.

S - Grains, wheat, oats and sweet maltiness.

T - Following the nose, very strong bread notes. Sweetness contrasts with a bitter hop line that comes forward in the close.

M - Crisp carbonation and slick feel, with a nice bit of drying in the close.

O - Drinkable and bright, an easy tipper with decent balance.

Can pour at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
