From the 650 ml. bottle best by 11/05/15. Sampled on July 22, 2015.

Straw yellow pour under a boisterous white fizzy head that fades to a ring.

Aroma of crusty malts, crackers, toast, dank cellar, and a little bit of grassy hops.

Light to medium body.

The taste is mildly sweet and toasty with a mild to moderate earthy or grassy bitterness coming up from behind.
