The golden amber color of this beer is really appealing and beautiful. The carbonation is low and the mouthfeel is really light and a bit watery. This beer is kind of a bitter/sweet combo, but more on the bitter side. It has a clean aroma with a little spice from the yeast.

24oz bottle served into a russian river goblet

pours a picturesque amber color with a ivory head. nice lacing going down the glass

banana, sweet bread, malts, and some earthy tones in the smell

taste is similar to the smell. faint hops at the end, nice surprise

pretty light and crisp mouthfeel
