Pours a clear amber color with a 2 finger width half foamy, half carbonated head. A lot of carbonation bubbles. Head retention is excellent. Lacing is very good. Malty, fruity aroma with a touch of honey. Kind of floral. Not much there, though. Very biscuity, pale, malty taste up front with some fruitiness at the end. Tropical fruit, maybe plums. Kind of buttery. Very mild floral hops. Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. Decent beer but not a go to beer.
