KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
375ml Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 fingers) off white frothy head that reduced down to a puddled film and large collar with good sticky spotty lacing.

The aroma was moderately malty with a biscuit malt, light floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast along with notes of caramel, citrus (orange and tangerine) and a mild fruity ester (raisons and figs).

The taste was good and malty with a moderate caramel sweetness which was present throughout, and then progressed with a bit of fruitiness along with a mild hop presence and a good bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a sweet bitter citrusy taste lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a watery yet dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall I really enjoyed drinking this brew, it possessed just the right balance of sweet malts and bitter hops... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
