Crystal clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Cirrus lacework. Malty, sweet aroma. A bit floral and chocolatey. Maybe a note of vanilla and a hint of port. The well-balanced flavor is lightly chocolately and roasty with a suggestion of buttermilk. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, crisp finish.
