A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint medium yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to a small to medium sized patch of very thin film covering slightly less than 25% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready + pale + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. Light to moderate aromas of spicy + earthy hops. Hints of sulfur.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of bready + pale + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by a slight hint of sulfur. Finally there are light flavors of spicy + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which slowly fades away.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly clean finish. Enjoyable with the flavors and aromas that I expect for the style and just enough sweetness without having too much.
