Pours clear with a golden hue, slightly red. Nice solid inch of off-white head that lingers for a while. Sticky lacing.
Aroma is a good balance of malt and hop, but leans more towards the hops. Some spicy and noble varieties show up. Light bready maltiness.
Good grainy, malty backbone in this one that supports a good mix of hops. A touch of citrus pith that is followed up with some earth English varieties. Not overly bitter, but definately a kick. Fairly clean with regards to the yeast.
Medium mouthfeel with an in-between residual sweetness level. A little crispness. Overall quite refreshing and a solid beer.
