A:A nice clear amber color with a slightly off white head that has some staying power. The head lingers along the side of the glass leaving a little bit of lace behind.
S:At first there is a nice and mild hop aroma that pops into the nose. The hops might be of the noble varity, with a little bit of herbal coming through. Also some caramel is playing a little bit behind the hops.
T: At first there is a slightly sweet, malty flavor but it is quickly followed by the hops, who the beer seems balanced towards. It's not a hoppy beer by any means, but the flavor will be more dominate than the malt. There is a good deal of hop flavor in the middle which leads to a slight bit of bitterness in the finish.
MF: There is a medium mouthfeel with an average about of carbonation.
D: Overall, this is a great beer to sit back and drink. Luckly, this beer happens to be almost everywhere so if I'm in a bar with a poor beer choice then I can always at least hope they have this beer. It is very easy to drink. I love the amount of hops in it, not too much or too little.
