Served from the bomber into an 8 ounce sampler. A moderate pour produces a short creamy white head that settles down into thin lacing sticking to the sides. The beer is a beautiful copper color with yellowish highlights and is quite effervescent.

I smell lots of sweet malt with some mild floral hops. The taste is a malt treat, with undertones of caramel, with just enough bitterness from the hops to balance. The finish is crisp with a lingering bitter-sweetness.

This true classic is very flavorful and refreshing, and quite reasonable priced as well.
