Appearance is a crystal clear golden straw color with a thin layer of head that dissipated rapidly. The nose is lightly malty and the maltiness is also lightly present in the flavor profile. This offering is light-bodied. The finish has a semi-dry bitterness from the hops which appears to grow more hoppy as one moves down the glass.
