Bottle. Malty cereal aroma with citrus, light spice, dough. Deep gold tending to orange tints, medium fine head. Citrus, grass flavor withh medium biscuity malts. Quite a bit of residual sweetness that the slight citrus tang cannot quite balance. Not much bitterness at all, really. Fruity flavors are nice enough, though.
