Unremarkable but pleasant enough aroma. Gorgeous, classic head with considerable staying power. Blond appearance belies a tasty beer. Medium body with clean finish.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]
