Pours a pale amber color with a big pillowy off-white head that quickly settles into a light cap.

The aroma is bready, soft, with light hints of caramel. Some light grassy hops but not much. Aroma is quite neutral.

The taste is of fresh whole grain bread. Ever so light caramel sweetness. No mineral or metallic notes which are usually present in amber ales. Noticable grassy hop presence that adds some earthy bitterness. Very soft for the style, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

The feel is moderate with semi-soft carbonation; quite smooth. Lightly sweet on the palate and finishes with a light grassy bitterness. Drinks very easy.

Not as dry or sharp as your typical amber ale. Drinks very well just not extremely flavorful.
