Pours a light copper color with small white head that turns to a nice lacing. Smell is a nice balance between hops and malt. The malt tastes hits you up front followed by hops in the back end of the drink. The beer is smooth with some carbonation. This makes for a great session beer due to the low alcohol content and good taste.
