Pours to a black color with brownish-red tints when viewed against light. The head is a pale cream color with minimal retention. Delicate lacing left on the glass. Some hop-like aromas up front, but with a definite malty character. The flavor is a near perfect balance of malt and hops. The carbonation and body are ideal. Feels great going down. I've had much of the catalogue produced by Lakefront, but my first time trying this one. They do a great job with a lot of different recipes and didn't disappoint on this one. Reasonable price too, 6-pack for $7.99
