Bronzed body with a wonderful silken head. Pleasant combination of thyme and hop in the nose that works surprisingly well. Spicy, piquant, intriguing, and refreshing. The body strikes a nice balance of herbal and hoppy. Refreshing and quite enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Birreria, NY. Pours a bit cloudy amber with thin creamy white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of heavy thyme, mild caramel, some citrus and grassy hops. Taste starts with light sweet malt, following is fresh herbal and fruity, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Aroma is fabulous, otherwise it lacks carbonation and is too bland...

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 30.06.2013, cask @ the brewery / restaurant:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity spiced, light malts, thyme, yeast, hay, citrus, leafs, dough, hops. Taste is slightly dry grassy, light malts, hops, thyme, grass, leafs, citrus peel. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fits perfectly with various food. This is actually the best food beer I’ve ever had. And honestly, I can’t remember ever having a beer that’s actually been better with food than without.

Draught @ Birreria: This one poured a hazy, orangish color. There was a small off white head on it that didn’t linger too long, or leave much lacing. Interesting nose. I can smell a bit of the thyme. Light malts, a hint of pine and grain also. The taste is OK. Very subtle flavors. The thyme is there, but not overdone. Malts, hint of bitterness. It is a little hard to describe but it is good. A nice, unique beer.
