Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Pours a unique honeycomb amber with thin bubbly white head that retains for a good amount of time. It won't lace but it will ride the glass. When head finally dissipates it does lace and splotch.

S: Hops, sweet caramel malt notes, earthy spice, and citrus.

T: Hops, spice, sweet caramel malt, and citrus. The taste is well balanced and gives a crisp and formidable aftertaste.

M: Good coating and perfect carbonation level. Very drinkable and light bodied.
