Old Fountain. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Light palate, semi dry. Nice fine carbonation. Mild minerals. Decent hops. A little orange - tangerine and mild tropical fruits. Mellow bitterness. Finishes semi dry. Nice hops. There seems to be plethora of well hopped low abv beers about these days. This is a superior one.
