I had this on tap at the brewpub, enjoyed chilled.

The color is a deep copper and good clarity with thick white cap with lace that sticks and has good retention. the smell is lightly fruity with yeast and mild herbal hop with hint of toasted malt. The feel has moderate bitterness and semi-high carbonation with low sweetness and alcohol with dry finish.

The taste is decent with malt taste and light sweet tip there is a hint of yeast flavor with herbal hop backing and slight spiciness with yeast dryness in finish. Overall a bit hop forward but very good and worth trying
