Starts with a thin head but it settles to nearly no bubbles (just the edge). It does leave some spots though. The color is deep gold, light amber. A touch of haze.

Very light aroma for the style. The hop bitterness is quite subdued as is the any malt base.

The flavor is an improvement, but I am distracted by the thin body. The carbonation is okay--it leans to the spritzy side. The flavor is lightly toasted malt, giving this a bit of biscuit taste. The hop is strong and peppery. Good lingering aftertaste.
