Poured a clear, golden body with good head and a lace ring down the glass. The aroma is a pleasant balance of hops and malts. Little bit fuller bodied and possibly bready, the beer is smooth and dry and has a mild flavors that work well together and a crisp, clean finish.

Had this tonight at a hotel bar. It had a toasted bready taste with some citrus and a grapefruit like bitterness punch at the end, almost like an IPA. It was nice but at the same time it was not a whole lot to it.
