Served on-tap at The Tavern in Old Salem in Winston-Salem, NC

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some light notes of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy bright white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit malts with a lighter amount of cereal grains. There are light to moderate aromas of grassy and spicy hops as well.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit malts with a lighter amount of cereal grain malts contributing just a touch of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of grassy and spicy hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for a short amount of time.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Well balanced between the sweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops making it easy to drink and quite enjoyable. A classic example of the style.
