This beer pours clear burnt orange/amber color with a modest head that shrinks rapidly down to a long laster thin layer covering the top of this brew like a blanket.
The aroma reveals a hint of roasted malts with a nice earthy grain with just a slight musty smell that is present in a complimentary way.
The taste is a repeat with the roastiness punching through in a more pronounced fashion and sliding into the hints of earthy grass and slight hoppiness nestled in the background.
This is a light bodied beer that is spot on IMHO. It finishes with a very minute dryness in the end of each swallow.
This beer is a very easy drinker and one I wish I could get my hands on down here in the hot state of Texas. This would be my summer beer of choice on scorcher days.
