pours out a murky bronze colour with a thin light tan head. sparse lace. sweet maltiness on the nose with a slight butter and herb accent accented by some grassy notes. the grassy and herbal hop profile carries over to the taste, providing a pleasantly bitter bite that easily balances out the residual sweetness. malt base is meekly sweet showing off a touch of burnt sugar and toasted bread. a fair body for a lower ABV steam beer with a unique mouthfeel that teeters back and forth between sugary sweet and coarsely bitter. nice drinkability. has a session aspect to it.

overall, a rather flavourful brew imbedded within a unique style. sublimely balanced and nuanced. i'd like to sample this on tap.
