Exceptionally vibrant. Strong notes of grass, hay, malted barley. Immensely hoppy. Baked pears in syrup. Tinned fruit salad. Ground almonds. Touch of pineapple and grapefruit. Once left for a while, the fruitiness fades to leave huge, crystal-clear barley, and an almost new-make freshness. Flavors of aple syrup. Freshly baked apple pie. Cinnamon. Oatmeal. Barley sugar. Very grassy. Lots of straw. Pears. A notable tannic dryness on the finish. Very spicy, with black pepper. Malty, and again like a light hoppy ale.
