A slightly cloudy, some lacing and two finger head down to a pencil sized head after settling
S bread like smell with a dank-banana aroma
T musky taste up front then to bread then lingering alcohol, bubbles throughout
O overall i feel this beer is great for someone who is not familiar with craft beer and is transitioning from adjunct lagers to the craft world. I feel I could use more malt to balance the back ends excitement.
