A: poured into a nonic pint to a clear golden copper hue with a small white head that fades quickly
S: smells of fruity esters, caramel and some juicy hops
T: taste is caramel malts, fruity esters, and some slightly floral hops. swallow is a nice lingering floral bitterness with a little more caramel malts
M: this beer sits at the lighter side of medium on the palate with soft carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: very well made and this beer has no apparent faults. very drinkable and a great example of the style.
