Lightly hazy solid gold color with a very nice light beige head, slow bubbled carbonation, and some lace. Excellent grainy malt and lightly hopped aroma and flavor with great balance -- very clean all around. Medium-full bodied, creamy and smooth with a strong malty finish.

Excellent example, if not the best example, of the style !!
