Semi-hazy yellow pumpkin color, sudsy esb head. Smell is lemon, pine, sweet fruits. Feel is light-medium, crisp yet buttery. Taste is bitter(obviously) pine, lemon rind, pie crust, bready grain finish.

The best tasting 4% beer you'll ever drink.

Pours an opaque amber with a medium head. The nose is very floral with some spicy hops and a hint of sweet caramel. Flavor has earthy tea notes and pale malts with mild hoppy spice and an earthy bitterness. Finishes with a subtle hop taste that lingers.
