12 oz can poured into a kolsch glass. Light yellow, slightly hazy with a thick head mounded above the rim.
Aroma: sweet, vegetal, yeasty, some citrus
Taste: mildly sweet with citrus and a nice hoppiness
Feel: medium mouth feel with a little hop burn on the tounge
Overall: One of my favorite all-purpose beers

Serving Type: Can
Glassware: Pint glass
Appearance: Translucent, hazy virtually no head which quickly went to a thin bit of lacing. Straw colored.
Smell: Musty and crackery, yeast forward. Some presence of citrusy hops.
Taste: Biscuit like with mild noble hop presence. Faint traces of apricot, clover honey and hay. Definitely some earthy/musty funk going on with that.
Mouthfeel: Thin, crisp and dry. Adequate attenuation but a lingering sense of grittiness that detracts from the experience..
