Draft sample. Poured a clear copper color with an average to large fizzy white head that was mostly lasting and had good to excellent lacing. Good malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.
