Hazy amber pour with a white head. Watery aroma, grass, yeast, and lots of apple. Sort of a solvent aroma, some bread, toast, and lemon zest tartness. There’s a lot of lemon/sourness, grass, yeast, and apple skin. A bit of solvent character, bread, grass, and sort of an under-attenuated finish.

On tap @ Jacks poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting light amber head. Aromas of light cocoa and a hint of nuts. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, a hint of nuts and toasted malt with a lingering bittersweet finish.

Perfect amber color, perfumey, a bit of fruit and a tad of shoe. Good body, good chew.
