Simple nose, earthy, grassy, floral hops, bread, some caramel. Clear orange-gold with a quickly fading white head. Dry, somewhat crisp in the attack, clean flavors reflecting the aroma. Light, a little bit too yeasty to be called refreshing.

Bottle (which was probably older than ideal). Not much to speak of really, I found it pretty bland and standard. Still drinkable though
