Pours a clear light amber with a slightly red hue. Slight head and lacing that doesn't linger. Slight nose of pine hops against a sweet background. Light medium body and good carbonation. The taste is laid back with a mild bitterness predominating a light sweetness. Very well balanced with a short burst of mild hop flavor that is balanced between pine and citrus. Clean crisp finish with a slight lingering bitterness that is somewhat tart. A very good session beer for non-hopheads.
