Golden amber in color. Fairly clear. Bready and malty. Toasted grain. Crisp, clean and delicious. Light drinking. A bit under carbed, but not detrimental to the overall drinkability. Real good for a fest beer.

Appearance- Copper color with a one inch head.

Aroma- Toasty bread, spicy hops, and a little malt sweetness.

Taste- Very similar to the aroma with toasted malts up front, a little spicy/herbals hops in the middle, and dry bready malt in the finish with a little bit of sweetness (more bread than caramel).

Feel- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and dry/semi-clean finish.

Overall- Very solid festbier with emphasis on toasted malts with a little bit of spicy/herbal hops. Definitely has most of the elements of a good festbier, the finish could be cleaner, but its solid overall and worth grabbing a growler or two when available.
