The look is a nice clear dark amber/bronze color. A nice bubbly/off-white head.

Nothing off-putting about the smell whatsoever. Earthy/ Citrus notes.

Tasted slightly bitter. Citrus. Bready almost. Nothing overwhelming.

The mouthfeel was perfect for me. Smooth and drinkable throughout. Very refreshing.

Overall one of the best craft beers I've had the pleasure of drinking in my young beer career lol .
