Honey-gold in color with a small but lacefull white head. Has an aroma of flowers and some herbalness with a wheaty sweetness. Light flavor with some floral tones, a little herbal hoppiness, and a pleasant honey tones. Bitter only in a flower-pedal kind of way. Unique and refreshing with the right amount of sweetness. Not shabby!
