Best by Aug 2014, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear dark golden color with an orange hue, small creamy white head that retains nicely, due to some carbonation bubbles shooting to the top

S- toasted cracker malt with a subtle bready sweetness, faint grassy hops

T- light bready sweetness continues into the flavor with hints of a cream ale, small traces of grassy hops mix with a bit of yeast, lightly toasted malt on the finish

M- light-medium body with moderate-but-biting carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and dry finish, high drinkability

O- the best light beer I've had to date, this certainly isn't a style that I enjoy often, but SA did a good job with this one
