It’s hazy, warm golden and the aroma has notes of hay, malt, light straw and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes like the aroma, and the finish is bone dry.

Fliptop bottle courtesy of ogivlado who shared it with me (thanks!)
Ooh, seems to be rare, nice! Anyway, it poured a full golden body with a huge thick whiteish head. Pleasant sweetish, oily nose, some fruity notes. Fresh! Perfumey, slightly even rosy and peachy notes over a dry grainy body. Some light hoppy bitterness, some yeast. Just a tad too empty but overall quite pleasant.
