Good head, pours a hazy orange amber color. Faint aroma of hops, mostly smell of bread like malt, and very light floral smell. Taste is light and refreshing. Nothing distinctly jumps out. Mild bitter finish, and acidic feel, that balances out the faint sweet malt taste that starts it. Mouthfeel is what would be expected- light, not too dry, smooth. I feel like this beer works well as an introduction to craft beers and one to come back to for something easy drinking that is a good step up from generic big beer companies.

One finger creamy white head over an amber body; tons of lacing.

Faintly hoppy nose, some roasty (nutty) malt.

Body is rich, toffee, malt, balance well with some hops that come through on the front. Some very very faint black pepper.

Mouthfeel is nice and rich- smooth and creamy, doesn't steal from the taste.

Overall solid, super-drinkable and quite nice, not off the wall, and versatile as far as food is concerned.
