Big slightly bubbly longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grainy, wet grain, dried fruits, hay, sugar, grass. Taste is slightly dry grassy, light malts, hay, grass, wet grain, herbs, cardboard, weeds. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Pretty boring, definitely a old bottle if the labelling is correct.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Nikki and Andreís wedding, CT. Shame a good bit of the bottle spilled after some dude knocked it over. Never the less, what I had was very good. Plenty of earthy hops throughout, light toasty bread, light to medium sweetness, dirt, faint dry caramel. Light to medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Good balance to finish, moderate bitterness of earth, light leaves, toast. Solid. Nails the style.
