Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light fruity ester with some light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hops presence that is also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with a dry and slightly bitter hops presence. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. Well brewed for the style.
