Pretty good brew. Self popping cork! With a good, solid bang, too!! Poured with a small to medium sized, sudsy, off white head that lasts a little and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy light amber. Aroma is lots of citrus fruit, malt, yeast. Taste is very similar with lots of lingering sweetness. Body is very good and it has champagne like carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. Easy drinking beer.
