12oz. bottle

Pours a clear copper color with a white head that thins. Spotty lacing on the glass.

Aroma is fairly crisp and malty with just a slight suggestion of hops.

Taste is rather crisp and malty with just a slight fruitiness from the warm fermentation temps. Has a nicely balanced hop bitterness but the only trace of hop flavor is a mild suggestion in the afteraste. Finishes quite dry.

Meduim body, plenty of carbonation.

I can always drink one (or six) of these. This is the standard for the style, as they created it.
