Pours a warm reddish amber with perfect clarity. Its light tan head starts out well enough, then fades to a small ring around the edge. Fair amount of lacing. Nice aroma with the balanced slightly tilted towards the sweet, fruity malt. A bit of green hops (dry-hopped?) as well as a hint of earthiness and minerals. Some caramel/crystal malt presence. The flavor is well balanced between the sweet, caramelly malt, the spicy and green hops, and earthy yeast. Theres a significant amount of mineral taste and hardness from an over-eager water treatment. Interestingly enough, the fruity esters and earthy yeast combine to take on an almost spice-like character. The body is on the lighter side of medium, with the aforementioned mineral dryness and chalkiness. Lots of carbonation. This is surprisingly good, and a very solid example of an undefined style.
