Cloudy amber-brown in appearance with a bubbly egg head up top. An orange hue comes through as well. Head slims to a rim.
Smells a touch peppery; bready with a citrusy/lemon edge. Hints of burnt rubber at times (odd, but not gross). Light and refreshing in the nose. Both spring & summer seem like appropriate seasons for imbibing this judging from the aroma.
Dry biscuit cuts in the taste pulling itself up front. Spicy hops flavor throws in. Peppery; lemon juice. Lime. Bittering hops lie in the middle, allowing this one to wash away clean.
I'll try it on-tap next.
