In short: a "mild bitter", if this makes any sense.
Pours hazy golden with little white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Malty, some butterscotch and grassy aromas. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is malty, little hop punch, herbal one, some diacetils. Very well balanced. Smooth and enjoyable.
