The beer departs the 12-ounce brown bottle a deep ruby brown, the modest in size head is semi-creamy, the color a nice light tan, and after dematerializing, the lace forms a thin sheet upon the glass. Nose is rich in malt, hints of caramel, fresh and clean, start is slightly sweet, the grain profile adequate. Finish is pesky in its acidity, the hops apropos to the style; chalky dry aftertaste lingers long on the palate, a drinkable beer.
