This light to golden-colored beer is on the lighter side featuring light grain and hops bittering. Pair it with your favorite Asian dish or Mexican dish. It’s easy to enjoy with heavier dishes because of its lightness. You can even pair it with a fresh, spicy salad like this Mexican chicken and rice salad.
