Light amber and copper under a soft white head which slowly fades with bubbles and lace into a thin blanket.
Dried apricots and peaches, lemon cake and lemon bars. Dry golden bales of have and dried hop leaf underneath.
Sweet and bready then spicy and fruity. Interesting frosted sweetness of lemon cake and lemon bars. Nice kick of spice in the back – rye seeds come to mind.
