Appearance:   “Light golden shade with creamy white head. Pretty much looks like any lighter beer (like pilsners, lagers).”

Aroma:   “Well, it smells like beer. That’s a good thing, I’d say. There’s a little bit of fruitiness or something sprightly there.”

Taste:   “It’s very light and fresh-tasting. There’s an attractive, albeit subtle, maltiness to it and there’s enough hoppiness to balance things out but not to dominate.  There’s an almost ‘fluffy’ feeling in the mouth. There’s taste here, but it seems to go down easily. Would this qualify as a “session” beer?

Food Affinity:   “It would be perfect with butterflied shrimp in a very light beer batter. Maybe you could try it with Buffalo wings, as long as they weren’t too spicy?”
