Deep clear amber color, large light beige head, and wonerful lace down the entire glass. Malts and hop floral scents dominate. Start is malt sweet, the middle moderate as with the carbonation, just the right amount of bite leading to a spectacular finish which is clean, crisp, dry. An excellent brew.

A: Golden amber with a nice head that settles into a lasting white lace.

S: Loads of floral, spicy hops. Touch of earthiness.

T&M: Smooth, medium body. Sharp, tangy, fruity, citrus bitterness. Light floral and spicy. Large hop finish.

This is one of my favorites. I always come back to this for a regualr drinking ale!
