Look: Illuminated brass orb and shadowed by encroaching wings.

Smell: Sweet breads with grain crusts welcome the nose. Less prominent are dandelion leaves and flower buds, but they do manage to peek through the doughy foundation.

Taste: Those flower buds are far less coy in the mouth than in the nose, dusting the imbiber with sweet leaf aromatics. After the floral wave grassy herbs soon start to rampage. The message here is that this libation has been lagered by ruminants, deer, in particular, who have mashed together seed imbedded crusts with rich spears of grass of which these four legged munchers are connoisserus.

Feel: Smooth and teetering on flatness.

Overall: One mug suffices as the vegetable musings that is this beer tend to creep about before completely entangling the senses. I liken the moment to an encounter with aesthetics not far removed from Gaea's earthy furrows and verdant bowers.

Pours light gold, maybe dark straw with a small white dense head. Aroma of slight DMS, adjunct like sweetness, light hops, medium esters. Far more sweetness than hops. Flavour is light dms and strong malt flavour. Medium level of hop flavour mixed in, but back end is overtaken by medium-high ester level with light dms. Finish is very much on the sweet side. Medium body and carbonation, finishes somewhat warming?? Overall not a bad attempt but no where near clean or dry enough for the style. Needs more hops
