Hazy amber - gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light, smooth and has reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, mildly sweet. Hops bring a pithy citrus. Mild tropical fruits. Spicy orange before a light finish. Nice enough.

On tap at Church Key, DC. It pours a dense finger thick off-white head over a clear, dark golden body. Peaches, pine cones, grapefruit peel and a nice maltyness in the aroma.
