A clear copper/amber color with a thin white head. Very good nose of malt, caramel and a hint of fruit. The flavor is roughly the same with a bit of green apple. A good beer, although uninspiring.

On tap @ Siver Creek. (11/30). Pours a light, warm copper. No noticeable head or even residual foam. Faint aroma of bready yeast and even fainter, hops. Hops is the first thing to hit the tonque, followed by a mellowing malt; hints of cumin and pepper. Flavors linger nicely on the tonque. Medium body. Overall - very drinkable.

Pours a clear yellow-gold, thin whispy white head. Subtle phenol aroma, no bitterness, some fruit flavors. Light-medium bodied. Just ok, seems like a light Farmhouse ale.

pours a slightly murky copper with a medium off white head. Some wispy lacing. definite biscuit with some grass aroma. Really smooth clean taste with some bitterness on the end. A little hop presence on the finish. Nicely balanced drinkable brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty copper hue, with a nice white head, it’s crystal clear. Nice balanced aroma, malty (sweet and nutty), some floral hops, and a crisp and spicey yeast aroma. Good malt flavor upfront, bready then nutty, with mild bitterness. It finishes clean with a sparkling carbonation and a caramel aftertaste. This beer won’t make me excitied for winter as Capital claims, but it may help the time pass more easily.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gourgoeous copper color. Nice malty, caramel aroma that is very sturdy and appealing. Medium carbonation and a spritzy head that fades fast. Nice malty back bone, with some very subtle spice notes. Little if any hops, but that seems appropriate in this beer. It's nice having a winter beer that's not all cloves, spices and hops for a change. Nicely done, by a great brewery.

light amber color with an off white head diminishes quickly, malt, fruit, and sweet aroma...malt comes through in the flavor with a subtle butterscotch and very light bitterness, light body with slight carbonation and quite smooth finish...very drinkable
