12-ounce stubby poured into a shaker pint glass yields a clear golden amber body capped with a finger of fine white foam that recedes to a ring leaving swatches of thin lacing on the glass.

Smell is malty and dry with a nice dose of grassy, herbal hops.

The taste matches the smell almost seamlessly. Dry, crisp, and malty up front, the drink is punctuated with spicy notes of herbal hops with a little grass and is finished by a nice clean bitterness.

Medium-bodied and crisp with a nice clean finish, the beer is very drinkable and refreshing.
