Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours light amber in color with a tall white head and some nice lacing.
S: A really good aroma to this. Nice pine notes as well as some citrus (grapefruit). There’s a bit of biscuit malts along with mild grass and some herbal hops. Very resinous and oily.
T: Mild toffee flavor and sweetness on the flavor. Plenty of grass and pine hop notes, but not quite as much citrus. Just a bit of grapefruit peel and a pretty decent bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: Really great nose on this. The flavor isn’t quite as good, but it’s still enjoyable and at sub-5%, really easy to drink.
