Tasting notes

A: Golden, orang-ish amber hue. Pours about a 1 finger, bubbly white head. S: Sourdough bread, accentuated with a little honey, buttery, with light floral and fresh grass components.T: Bitter pine, but not too much so. Light bready flavor. Slightly acidic, with a touch of sweetness.M: Although bitter, has something of a full hearty feel. Dry finish. Not much aftertaste. Overall Great Beer
