Enjoyed this stubby bottle out of a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden ale with a thin 2-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Zesty malt and grain aroma. Not a huge nose but pleasant nonetheless.

T: Light bitter flavor with tart aftertaste.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This is better than your average lager – better than the watered down beer you normal get. It is easy to drink and refreshing.
