Pours a brilliant amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.

Caramel malt, fruity specialty malt character, bubblegum, and muted grapefruit form the aroma.

Flavor reveals a toasted breadcrust and nutty backbone, accompanied by floral hops. Bitter hops take over in the finish. Underpinnings of citrus are muted, more pithy than tart. Floral hops are intriguing.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with light alcohol warmth.

A little more bitter than I'd prefer. There's a struggle between bitter hops and overly toasted malt that I don't enjoy. The floral hops are nice, and a welcome change.

Serving type: on-tap
