Clear brassy hue, excellent suds. Mint, marmalade, biscuits, faint caramel, blonde tobacco, ripe pear, clean esters. Very smooth, deep crispness, hop bitterness, citric rind, leafy, dried grass, lightly toasted bread, kumquats, papaya, herbal, drying finish. SN pretty much nailed it with this one, some say this is now the benchmark for the style ... if so that would be setting it pretty high.
