Deep copper/amber color with a one-finger head and excellent lacing. Toasted malt and caramel aroma, with evidence of grassy hops. Flavors are similar, and include herbal spice. Medium body, nice carbonation, and a lingering floral hops bitterness that ends in a crisp finish. Much better than expected.
