A - Pours a dark amber with light hues around the edges with an eggshell head.

S - Light hops, bready malts and sweet esters.

T - It's like a mix of bitter/hops/toast/malts. There's some orange peel and a mild sweetness.

M - On the full side of light with medium carbonation.

O - I was hoping for more bitterness, but was only getting light hops. It's still an easy drinker with a clean finish.
