Straw, wet hay, very grassy. Rather weak on the nose with a mild bitterness.

It gets a 80/100.

Nice yellow touch with a soft white head 3/5" deep. Aroma had a mixture of light floral hopping, mild Belgian yeast, and a little bit of earthy tree like notes.

Taste was nice and refreshing, lemony hops, earthy floral stuff. Forward malt toasting, nicely done. Manages to come off light and flavorful at the same time.
