Poured into a Red Brick pint glass. Nice amber color with a fluffy white head that leaves ample lacing. Bubbles rising, right on through till the end.
The smell is of hops and dark fruit. Tastes fruity with a mild bitter finish, maybe even a little spice of some kind. Reminds me a little of a pale ale, but with some lager qualities. A very refreshing experience that is more lager-like on the palate. Ample carbonation is felt on the tongue. Should be a great beer during the hot months.
Drinkability is good. Low ABV and refreshing qualities should make it a sessionable summer beer.
Might be a beer that could turn a macro drinker towards better beer. It's different than any beer I've ever had, even though my description doesn't capture that very well. I would think all beer advocates would want to give it a try at least once.
