Pours a golden amber orange with a nice frothy off-white two finger head of foam.

Bread-like malts, caramel, pine, citrus, and some hop resin.

Much more citrus and pine in the swallow. Sweet pilsner malts are overpowered by a blast of citrusy hops.

Light-medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, bitter, dry finish.

Overall, not bad, but I was expecting Dissenter, so I was a little let down.
