Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of concrete/chalk.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation.
