3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper with a dense, creamy off-white head.
Aroma of caramel and pine resin.
The flavor is an even balance of light malt sweetness and hop bitterness that comes off more as dry than bitter.
This needs to be moved into the amber ales.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 Pint on tap. Deep copper with a lasting ring of cream. Nose is toffee and light citrus. Taste is caramel with some spicy resin, apple and citrus that develops into a wooden finish. Near-medium body has medium carbonation that fizzes a bit much, but strikes a nice balance with the long bitter finish. Not much of an ASA, but seems like a decent ESB with an extra dose of American hops.
