On tap in a pint glass.

A- Dark amber color, thick white head that will not quit and leaves decent lacing. Bubbly carbonation and radiant color enhance the look.

S- Bready, yeasty, caramel malty, and some fruity hops.

T-Pale malt and caramel backbone with some tart California lemony hop flavor. Earthy and pungent.

M- Great body for a 4.9 abv beer, nice crisp carbonation, too. There's some teeth to it, bite but not overly bitter. Dry malt and yeast finish.

O- Unique as a lager/ale, truly craft. Enjoyable very time.
