MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Slick toasted cereals and their straw-like foundations are balanced out by wooden, leafy hops in this quenching Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear golden.
-Both malts and hops are well defined in their delicate nature.
-The mouthfeel is smooth and slender.
-This cask is in great shape.
