phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by one of the nice gents at my table at RBWG on Friday night, but I can’t remember who made the trek down to Alabama. Chriso? Anyway, this one pours a bright gold, clear, with a tiny white ring for a head. Notes of cereal, corn, straw, honey, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Never would have struck me as a BdG. Didn’t do it for me.
