Though I can’t speak for it’s relation to its style or claimed heritage, I really enjoyed this beer. It had a good flavor and was refreshing and drinkable as well.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Bottles - Providence, RI. Damp, fermeneted wet grain, white grape, green apples, and dry asiago cheese rind. Pours a translucent pale orange and amber, with a nice clean white head. Flavors are chewy and grain forward, with a very classic profile. Moderate sweetness, ending mineral-laden and dry. There’s roving yeast and malt complexity that’s a little hard to pin down but that’s enjoyable and adds to the overall depth of this beer. I’m actually pleasantly surprised. I think this is a very good interpretation of the style and above average for American brewers. A very enjoyable amber-style beer with above-average complexity. Underrated, in my opinion.

A decent brew, good for a change for me. It is a little sweet for my taste, but I can still put down a 6-pack in a few days and feel quite happy about it.

Great aroma w/ banana, bubblegum, herbs; hazy golden hue w/ decent off-white head; flava is decent grainy some metallic notes; makes the tongue tingle and finishes for a long time.
