Its clear, deep-copper body has an orange-ish cast and reveals gleaming ruby highlights. Its creamy off-white head dwindles away to a wide collar and leaves only minor lacing. The nose delivers a mildly sweet, delicately fruity, and lightly toasty maltiness. The body is medium, and its fine carbonation gives a caress to the tongue before fading smoothly away. Malt dominates the flavor profile with a good blend of Vienna and Munich malts (too much Vienna can be a bit too toasted and harsh). It's bitterness is well balanced and its floral, grassy, and herbal hop flavors don't step too far into the limelight. Well balanced and very drinkable. It pairs well with their Turkey Melt on a Pretzel Roll sandwich! Worth trying. (976 characters)
