Appearance: Pours a clear golden amber color.

Overall: This is a clean refreshing beer. It is fully graced with a hop aroma but has a lot of malt too. The combination makes a crisp sessionable beer. Very Good.

Out of bottle pours nice golden color. Nose is grass slight citrus hop aromas. Taste is crisp clean pilsner qualities with a nice pine finish. Not overly bitter, thin, or watery like most sessional beers.
