Decent golden color, clear, thick white head that clings to the glass.

Strong sweet malt aroma with some bready notes and a touch of sulfer. The hops balance nicely.

The flavor is much the same as the aroma with a good malt complexity that accents the breadiness. The hopping is pleasant, but feels a bit overdone and lingers a bit to the finish.

Overall, this one is very drinkable and I would definitely buy it again.
