Pours a dark burnt orange amber with a medium lasting beige head. Aroma and Taste of toasted malt and grains, grass, yeast and fruity notes mild hops bitterness. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a nice toasted malt grains flavor, fruity with mild bitterness, some nutty lingering flavors on the end. A fairly good tasting and refreshing brew.
