Color is a firm cloudy golden straw yellow, growing firm and frothy a white one inch head builds slowly and reatins for a good long time, slowly slips down to a thick haze, lace in slow dripping ink blots. Smell is mostly yeasty and spiced, some citrusy lemon and white pepper underlay with a slight touch of alcohol. Taste is subtle and fairly complex with an overall mellowness thats super nice with an easy and soft maltyness, lightly citrusy of lemon and melon rinds, dulled tangyness, some notes of musty grasses and sugar. Spicy yeastyness is light up until the finish where it approaches ever so tingly and lightly building slowly, gaining some and helping end with a calm dryness in the finish. Carbonation was perfect, solid and full bodied, a nice crescendo from start to finish and a bit of thickness and even some light chewyness rendering in some of the finish. Nice malty balance with the yeast, and what ever hops may be in there adding in with some of that grassyness and very slight calm bitterness thats barely noticeable in the middle. A definate keeper and a wonderful drinker. Mellow, soothingly smooth, thick, luscious, a hidden alcoholic treat to be shared, if willing ; )
