The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow with a soapy, white head. It smells very grassy-sweet and hoppy-bitter. Starts with grassy hops, subtle bitterness in the background, also slightly grainy with some hay in the background. The middle part has some more hay and grass, it tastes very "countrified." Goes into a hoppy-sweet and grainy finish with plenty of grassy hop flavors!
