The beer pours a dark golden and honey in color. There is an inch of white, foamy head. The aroma is toasted malt, hay, bread dough. The taste follows the aromas, a very malty lager, a touch of sweet, bready, with enough hops to make a dry finish, that has a note of dusty straw in it. The beer drinks crisp, with a firm carbonation. It is a quite decent lager to start, but wears out its welcome on the palate as you make your way through the tall bottle, and chemical off notes start to crop up.
