Light amber hued with fantastic clarity. A fingernail of off white covers the majority of the top. Light Brussels lacing. I smell citrus hops and marzipan. I taste a nice well balanced blend of amber malt and citrus hops. The mouth moderately carbonated and crisp.

Excellent Pale Ale - a regular in the kegerator. Refreshing and not overly hoppy, all around great brew
