This clean, highly refreshing selection pours a clear light-gold color, with a frothy off-white head that lingers. Initial aromas of mildly sweet malts open the bouquet, with secondary notes of grain, hay and subtle accents of grassy hops and honey. A hint of mineral adds character to the palate, which is clean and well balanced thanks to slightly tart and astringent notes that counter the sweet malt flavors. This would be an ideal match for a plate of cured meats and cheeses.
