3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a nice pillowy off-white head that sticks around, leaving plenty of webby lace on the way down. Bread crusts and a little bit of dried orange peel on the nose. Creamy medium body, soft and mouth-filling, with subdued carb. Toasty, bread-crust-y, lightly orange-y mid palate. Clean finish. This beer is right where it needs to be, and nowhere else.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Light to medium body with flavors of grainy malt, caramel and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
