Golden pour, lots of clarity, 1/2" white head. Aroma wasn't hoppy, the hybrid yeast situation yielded sweetness.

Taste was a bigger than usual common (6.5%), but it was relatively disguised by the yeasty sweetness to the beer. Good stuff, definitely comparable to Anchor Steam. Good for summer weather. One of the sweeter SN beers I've ever had.
