A nice one finger cocoa and creamy brown coffee head, with nice retention and staying power slowly falls and inches it’s way down to hinting a collar. A nice dark walnut brown body compliments and is opaque. Looks like chocolate in a glass.

A pale, well-balanced beer combining crisp lager character with fruity ale notes. The clean grain bill provides a refreshing drinkability and supports late aroma and dry hop additions of Czech Saaz hops. Pair with locally harvested oysters or roast pork medallions. This is no common beer!
