A - Pours a lightly hazed amber with a one finger foamy white head. Nice amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma raspberry and pilsner malts.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Raspberry, pilsner malts and a subtle hop bite.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Nothing spectacular just a nice easy drinking beer.

One of my favorite beers. I have no idea why it's getting low ratings. It's the perfect amount of raspberry

Good for a change of pace. Wouldn't want to drink it every day but very nice once in a while.
