A: This is copper to amber in color with a 1 finger rapidly dissipating head.
S: estery aromas with some floral in the nose, after the esters, malt.
T: There is a little malt and fruit at the start but it finishes with a spicy, herbal, floral under taste
F: Medium to medium light body, medium high carbonation.
O: It is very refreshing. The herbal spiciness goes well with the carbonation and the hops. It kind of adds onto the malt and hop flavors – you can tell the floral is there but it is not overwhelming.
