A malty, citrusy, hoppy fruity nose with faint floral notes.
Pours a beautiful amber with a 1" dreamy off-white foam cap that provides excellent lace.
The malt dominates the palate penetrating throughout offering big caramel and creamy flavors with a bitter accent on the finish.
Medium body and carbonation.
