A - This beer has a pencil neck mustache of creamy white head. Not much retention or lacing. It has a nice clear pale amber color.

S - Sweat breadiness jumps out at me.
T - Super Smooth and easy to drink. A nice sweet malty flavor but the hop characters add for a crisp finish. Soft and fruity hops, nothing that snaps at your tounge but the bitterness is underneath.

O - Very complex and enjoyable. Very drinkable and a nice path into a different kind of beer for me. I would definitely get this again.
