Has a cloudy dark brown color, some floaties in my ber. Smell is on the hoppy side. Taste is hops, some slightly medicianal flavor I can’t quite describe, a little different. Overall a decent beer.

Tap. Clear golden color. Medium size, firm white head, stays. Sweet, fruity, citrus in aroma. Simple, but pleasant aroma. Taste is pretty much the same plus mild spicy bitter hops. Perfect simple pale ale. So easy to drink. Very well done!
