Beer poured from bottle into a conical shaped Pint glass

A - Beer pours with a copper colored body; beautiful creme/off-white colored head rocky head forms from pour; one finger size head, which held very well; visibly well-carbonated body; no lacing though

S - Subtle hints of caramel malt, mostly at the end of every draw; citrus hop front; pine and green grass

T - Quick light pale malt taste, followed up with a caramel and roasted flavor that precedes the hop and pine finish; light citrus tart taste; crackers and biscuit

M - Creamy and bitter; not very overpowering in bitterness; moderate flavor profile making this a well-balanced beer; lingering tart bitter taste; not too extreme in the malt or hop direction

D - Good drink; easy to enjoy; not to heavy or light in the nose, taste, or mouthfeel category; not extreme, but pleasant; make this a staple in your fridge
