COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our all-time favorites. Exquisite balance between malt and hops with a beautiful golden pale color.

straw colored. small head. huge diacetyl presence. well worth a taste for that very reason, actually, if you want to pinpoint what diacetyl smells/tastes like.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden/orange. Not very much white head. Some decent citrus and sweet malt on this. Really not all that bad.

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Draft sample at the brewpub. Pours a light copper color with a small head. Fair head retention and poor lacing. Aroma is herbal and floral hops. Taste is bitter, metallic and resiny hop notes. Metallic... Iron Mine? I guess that makes sense. Really no maltiness anywhere. Watery, thin-medium bodied.
