Haven't had this in a while! Pours out of the bottle a beautiful semi-hazy coppery gold with a nice fluffy head. Nose is malty and nutty with a faint grassy note.

Flavor is malt-forward with lots of bready, chewey flavors. It is medium-bodied with a good firm mouthfeel. At mid-palate, there is a mild hop presence that joins all the malt, lending it a nice faint citrus-like note. The flavors all seem to linger together on the finish.

This is simply a classic American-brewed beer that is true to its style. Thankfully, it enjoys a wide distribution and is a worthy companion in your glass any time of day, any time of year.
