Pours a dark golden color with small foamy head. Head retention and lacing is very minimal. Aroma is not very strong. Slightly hoppy but more of a yeasty, apple-like aroma. Malty, bready taste up front with a strong hop bitterness that follows. Soapy, bitter aftertaste that persists very well. Good session beer. I prefer a less soapy aftertaste but there is still a good hoppy bite.
