Golden amber color. Wet clay, grain husk, and cocoa aromas with a soft, spry, dryish light-to-medium body and a delicate pencil shaving, cream, hay and pepper accented finish. An excellent everyday tipple.

Early-stage sniffings find delicate aromas of green vegetables, carnations and grain mash; further air contact brings up slightly sour notes of damp soil, glue and marshmallow. Exceedingly pleasant, grainy sweet and genial on the palate. Finishes cleanly.
