12oz bottle -pours a big rich to rocky off white head and hazy gold/amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel/pale-light/medium malt, secondary citrus/floral/spicy hops. Taste is a bit thin pale malt-some caramel, secondary floral/earthy/tea leaves/metallic hops. Much is OK but the detractors show up more, the further I get in. Thanks to chesky-SD via Joe-jwc215 for the trade.
