A- Clear straw yellow body, two finger white head with great lacing. Looks incredibly refreshing, especially when waiting outside for Wild Peach to be poured...

S- Clean grainy pale malt, earthy lager yeast. Not complex, but it's very well executed.

F- Very refreshing grainy pale malt, lager yeast, plenty of noble hops.

M- Smooth, medium in body, substantial with good carbonation. Noble earthy hops on the finish.

O- This is well done and I'm happy to be a Wisconsin resident for easy access to beers like this.
