Off the tap this beer was an amber/copper color. The one-finger head was tan, retained well as a cap and left good lacing. The aroma was dry, grainy, slightly stale and a nice balance of malt and hops. The flavors were quite good, a shot of dry grains at first then tempered by very floral hops, spices (coriander) and kumquat and tangerine tartness from the hops. Pleasantly bitter. Like a Mexican lager crossed with an ESB. The body was medium, the mouthfeel smooth and the carbonation spot-on.
