bulldogops (1402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Rating #1206 - 29.07.2014 - Bottle sent up from Saugatuck as advance samples. Clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light vegetal, sweet malts and grainy/grassy. Taste is a freight train of malt, medium bodied, with a tiny hoppy kick at the end to keep things interesting - grassy bitterness tempers the light bready malty sweetness.
