Golden color with no haze. Lasting head that leaves several streaks of lace.

Light caramel and mild hop.

Mild start but it grows to be earthy and lightly hoppy. Good body that is eventuated by the low carbonation. Relatively short aftertaste.

At the new brewery in Mira Mar. Hops good but not overpowering. Medium body; medium malt. Being fresh hopped I expected more of a hop kick. Maybe the hops are losing their freshness. Still a very good beer.
