Pours clean translucent copper with a big creamy light beige head! Aroma brings light clean sweet malts and a bit of apple. Flavor brings sweet malts with a tiny touch of clean apple tart and bitterness expected from the style. The body is super creamy and pleasant on nitro.

Pours a dark caramel brown color with a one finger head into my ccb snifter. Caramel malts with a great balance of bitter hops on the nose and the taste is intensified. This is a well crafted easy drinking session able beer. I could drink this all day!

Creamy white head floating atop a coppery pool of beer. Plenty of lacing. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with a very slight metallicness. Not bad.
