330ml bottle poured into tulip @ 45F

A: Beautiful, hazy toffee with a lingering finger of silky, light beige head

S: fig and raisin, bready notes with toffee and grass and a hint of tropical fruit

T: much the same as the smell, with a hint of golden syrup, a restrained hoppy finish and noticeable—but gentle booze.

M: medium-bodied and smooth, solid malt with medium-high carb. Well balanced.

O: Loved it! This is a really well-balanced beer with a solid malt backbone, but enough hops to make it a balanced—and, unexpectedly refreshing beer. I’ll definitely be having this again.
