This pours a toasty caramel-amber color. It’s clear with an inviting foam topping.

There’s a pleasant, albeit barely there hop aroma which lends a nice bite to the beer. The flavor is malty crisp, light enough to quaff but with a definite caramel-malt body that’s matched by a hoppy bitterness that emerges midpoint. There’s also a light hop note on the finish which rounds out the character and keeps it interesting.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a pint glass. Comes in at 5%.

A-Pours a clear amber color with some orange highlights. It has a thin off white head due to a full pour; what little head is on top is gone halfway through drinking the beer. Lots of bubbles cling to the side of the glass and can be seen rising from the bottom.

S-Lots of toasted and sweet malt are prevalent. The pilsner malt also is quite noticeable. The saaz hops used stay in the back.

T-Like the nose, the toasted and sweet malt used lead the way in the taste. There is a tad bit of hop bite in the end. In between sips it leaves a sweet tatse in my mouth.

M-Falls on the lighter end of the medium spectrum. Crisply carbonated.

D-A refreshing low abv beer that goes down easily.

A nice sessionable brew from Iron Springs and it is a good light option for anytime of the year.
