Decent head and lace, caramel and fruity smells. Substantial grassy and earthy bittering hops. Dry finish

This is one of the most perfectly balanced beers I know. A lucky customer can snag a 12-pack of this at the supermarket for as cheap as $12.99 (but usually a bit more), making it in Seattle *the* best beer that one can buy in terms of quality to price point. Significant head dissipates to a enduring lace around the edges. Strong and sweet slate of light malt, lightly toasted, is prominent. Fruity, but not citrusy or cannabisy, aromas and taste of hops balance the flavor but don't dominate. One of my ATF beers, which I buy regularly, and this tasting hasn't changed that perception a bit. Easy drinking and a crowd pleaser.
