Draft at Al’s of Hampden. Pouts straw yellow and clear with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. As the name indicates, it’s very grassy on the nose and tongue which is an odd blend, for me, with the barnyard element. Finish lingers a bit.

The flavor was musty, funky and bretty with strong perfume followed by chalk and an earthy not. Very long finish. Medium body. Not good hopscotch (11524) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2015
