Pours a dark amber with thick, creamy, off-white head that has pretty good retention and lacing.

Smells like fruit and yeast. Lemons and a little grass.

Taste is also lemon and a little funky. Slight bitter finish.

Good carbonation and smooth.

This is good. Easy to drink. Good session beer.

No date on bottle. Poured from 12oz bottle into a chalice.

A - Murky brown and amber color with a 1 finger head on the pour. Leaves a thick ring of white foam with mild lacing.

S - Fruity scents and a definite yeast component. Some spice as well.

T - Fruity with a slight funk from the yeast. Bread flavors and a slight spice component on the finish.

M - Generous carbonation with a thin to medium body.

A nice smelling and tasting beer. Very enjoyable.
