Aroma: Bready yeast

Appearance: Big white head lots of carbonation, hazy straw body.

Flavor: Slight fruity apple, bread, yeasty.

Mouthfeel: Light body with heavy carbonation which drys out your mouth quickly. Almost leaves a similar feeling like biting into a sour apple, kind of a tart dryness.

Overall: Great beer, clean and light with a nice alcohol warming at end, perfect San Diego winter beer, hot during day crispness and alcohol to warm you in the cool evening.
