Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is mainly constructed with wildflower honey, pale malts and tea biscuit. Full-bodied and sticky with adequate carbonation. The flavor presents honey, sweetbread and a small ration of peppery hops. Finishes crazy-sweet with lingering, pale grains. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94!

12 oz. bottle, from my secret santa. Pours clear gold, with a small, off-white head. Straw, biscuit dough, lemon zest, and coriander. Cloyingly sweet, with just a light spice and bitterness. Medium body, creamy, and thick, but with a clean finish. Overall, this is a sweet, sticky, and relatively complex beer.
