COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perfect beverage to relax with after a long day on the slopes, this extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and a slightly sweet malt at the end. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

adnielsen (9127) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Epic’s taproom in Denver. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a foamy off white head. Aroma is somewhat grassy / earthy. There’s some nuttiness to it as well. Kind of doughy. Decent body. Maybe just a hint of butterscotch in the flavor. Doughy / caramel / a touch sweet malty flavor. Short aftertaste. Not all that impressive but not a poor showing.
