Pours a super clear pale gold with lots of streaming bubbles under 2 fingers of dense white head that holds like mousse. Head lasts all the way down at 1/8" thick. Great lacing clings to the glass all the way down.

First thing to jump out of the glass is grainy malt, dry crackers, followed by mild floral hop notes. No diacetyl, no acetaldehyde. Touch of DMS.

Tastes of crackery malt, floral hops, and spicy hops, clean malt. Crisp and medium bitter finish that lingers. Mild vegetal notes, corn, DMS. No diacetyl, no acetaldehyde.

Medium light body, lots of carbonation dances on the tongue and tingles on the roof of the mouth. Semi-dry finish with balance towards bitterness.

Clean, crisp, wet, crackery malts, Noble hops, to the bitter and dry side, but not overly. Aside from the DMS, very close to style. Diacetyl is not evident, but low levels are part of the style. Easy drinking, and thirst quenching.
