On tap at Apex for Gigantic Beer Week.

A: Clear copper color with bubbles drifting throughout. A thin ring of white head.

N: Dried leaves, pine, damp moss. Biscuit and a hint of pineapple. Not very strong, and not really all that appetizing.

T: Really, really sweet. More of that damp grass. Pretty sweet and then astringent. Where are the hops?

M: Oily and heavy. Lots of alcohol. Needs a lot of work.

O: Really unimpressive. Not wholly undrinkable, but I've given this beer three chances now, and it's been a complete let down every single time. Pass.
