Bottle @ Bus. Thanks, John. Hazed golden pour with a big white head. Slight cardboard and lemon, but a lot of bready malt and a touch of clove. Some grass and cotton candy. Flavor is fairly sweet and bready on the front end. Good amount of banana as well. Sort of bitter and tart on the finish, however. Lots of grass and lemon peel. Mild clove spiciness. Kind of watery.
