This one is classic for sure! It goes down smooth and in Southern California you can find for less then 8 dollars a six pack compare to other craft beer this a great bargain

Appearance : It has a bronze and some gold color, and a very thick and lon lasting lacing

Smell: Pine and cedar
Taste - Plenty of hops which are balanced . Has a earthy " taste to it and very refreshing without feeling you up.
Mouthfeel : medium and and satisfying

People who are looking for a World Class beer with some hops in it witch are balance. This would be the beer to try. I been drinking this beer for 15 years now and I will keep on drinking it
