Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a sense, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Aroma is very subtle, with toasted nutty malt and floral hops dominating. There's a metallic note.
Flavor reveals more subtle character. There's a hint of underlying citrus, but the toasted malt backbone and specialty malt fruitiness dominate. The finish is nutty and a touch bitter. Floral hops become evident late, but the malt dominates. Metallic notes surface in the aftertaste.
Body is moderate to a touch light, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Not an amber by today's standards. Far less American hop character than we've come to expect. The malt is nice, though. Wish I liked this more.
