such a good beer. finger and a half head. Amber color head lasts throughout whole time but eased down to quarter inch. good lacing throughout. malty. little dry. smooth as hell. little bit of a hop bite. medium feel. I loved this. f or people who never had this it's like closer to a less intense Sam Adams I could drink this all the time

It has a light bready nose with light grains and spice. It pours brilliant gold with a three finger fluffy, lacy white foam collar. The beer has a good malt backbone, mostly light bread and grain with an mild initial sweetness that dries out by the finish. The hops taste like they have been added in flavors with herbal and spicy flavors mingling with the balancing hop bitterness. A very drinkable, refreshing medium to medium light bodied beer with slightly above average carbonation.
