Pours a darker golden yellow with a finger of white foam.

Toasted malts and biscuity sweetness, crisp, earthy and herbal hop notes.

Spicy/herbal noble hop bitterness, toast, and biscuits.

Light-bodied, high carbonation.

Overall, a crushable lager but nothing great.

12 ounce can served in a lager glass.

Pale yellow colored body; hazy with a big white head that also emerged from the can itself when the tab was popped.

Aroma: about equal levels of malts and floral/grassy hop notes.

Flavor: Mild-moderate bitterness. Grassy and lemony citrus hop character. with a light cracker palate.

Crisp dry finish.
