This beer rocks!
Beautiful, filtered, crystal clear, solid gold brew. Small, foamy, everlasting white head.
The brew was served too cold to gauge the aroma at first, but finally, as the lager warmed, notes of clover honey, butterscotch and toffee came through.
Very well-balanced beer. Wheaty and malty with blasts of butter and toffee. Also some citrus fruit and bitter hops. Not sweet at all.
Medium-bodied (yep, really) with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, astringent and grassy finish. Barley and Hops' new brewmaster makes all the difference. World class wheat!
