This was a staple beer of mine when I lived out west and now it has finally moved east of the Mississippi. It pours a light, ultra-clear amber with a wispy off-white head. The smell is fruity and somewhat raisin-like. I attribute this to the combination of hops and an assertive malt, reminds me of special B, but I don't think that's what they use. The biscuity-caramel malt shines in the taste though it is somewhat thin in mouthfeel. This is the prototypical jack-of-all-trades beer. Good in many respects outstanding in none, which I don't mean as a slight. It's a good choice for summer, winter, with a meal, or a session, whatever.
