Color is a nice medium amber with rose hues, not terribly clear though that may break over time. Pours with a thick, spongy head. Excellent lacing. Nice caramel and light grassy notes on the nose. More solid grassiness on the tongue with nice light malt notes. Beer is light bodied with a full flavor, very bitter, with a clean dry finish. Highly drinkable, extremely enjoyable.
