Pours a hazy golden light amber color. Light head. Medium head dissipates quickly. Has a light cripsy summer taste. Very drinkable, solid taste. This is all I have to say, this is all I have to say, this is all I have to say. I'm listening to Titus Andronicus right now. Hopefully tickets to Americanarama Bob Dylan, Wilco, and MMJ aren't too expensive. These reviews are largely for myself.
