COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer Camp #33 August 2010 ABV 6.2 IBU 45

Made by influential beer industry scribes Benj Steinman and Harry Schuhmacher, this hoppy golden ale should encourage creativity. Beautifully balanced toasty malt flavors work well against a crisp hoppy backbone, making this medium-bodied ale approachable, drinkable and enjoyable.
