Draft… Pours cloudy and golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Musky, earthy, peppery nose with an undertone of pale grains. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The well-balanced flavor offers pale malts and drinks much easier than most 8% abv beers, but is bland and minerally overall. Finishes crisp and minerally. Well executed, but uninspiring.
