A- Can poured to a stange with a pale golden blonde body. A cap forms on the beer to just over one finger with a creamy consistency. Head retention is decent as it dies to a small ring and puffy islands. Lacing starts with a thick sheet with spots below.

S- Light grainy base malts, slight hops but quite faint with the yeast bringing pale fruits like apple and hints of bread.

T- Again fairly straightforward with the addition of a hint of honey sweetness. Pale fruits with bread followed by spicy hops, light cereal grainy malts and a touch of citrus.

MF- Light end body with a crisp, lightly frothy texture. Carbonation at a fairly high level. Finishes with a slight bitterness.

Not bad in any way but also doesn't do much for me. I appreciate that it is mostly clean but it just lacks any compelling flavors or use of them.

This beer might be light on color but not in taste I just had this beer about a week ago and it quickly has become one of my favorites
