Pours a slightly off copper/amber color. With a nice sized off-white head that slowly dissolves towards the center leaving an interesting looking bit of foam floating on top of the beer.

It has an interesting smell, with yeast coming through pretty strong as well as some caramel and malts, and a faint bit of citrus.

The taste is smooth and refreshing. The yeast doesn't taste as strong as it smells, and actually you get a little bit of bitterness along with a slight citrus taste.

This beer has a pretty good mouthfeel, although the carbonation is just a touch more than what I usually prefer. A very drinkable beer.
