Nice copper color with decent head and not much lacing. Aroma is very light and bready. Taste is good, yet light. Get a little toast, a touch of citrus and some hop bitterness. Fast, dry finish which does not linger long. Not a bad brew from a great brewer

A sweet amber ale. Not very hoppy.

Used to think this was very good beer until I eventually more complex IPA's. Still, in its place a good beer
