A: Poured a pale bronze-gold with a tightly woven white head that was sticky leaving a rim lacing behind.

S: dry grains with some light doughiness and hints of spicy alcohol.

T: The initial flavor had a light breadiness to it, floral hopping and dried citrus. Very smooth and refined flavor and not as hoppy as one would expect. There was a light dry grains and grassiness detected in the finish with a gentle lingering fade of pale malts and light citrus flowers.

M: Crisp mouthful

D: Great drinkability
