Draft at the Warehouse. Crystal clear amber pour with a bubbly white head. Fairly fruity aroma, lager notes, toast, biscuits and sweet caramel maltiness. Flavor is similar with faint grassy and pine hop bitterness. Great sessionable beer and refreshing. Good stuff.

Growler. Shiny amber color with a big, soft head. Nose of toffee. Tons of sweet, slightly smokey malts balanced with a crisp hoppy finish. Another winner from this great brewery and a perfect session beer for the summer or winter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham - pours a an amber color with little head. Aroma of caramel malt and breadiness - with a faint hoppy scent (didn’t really notice any of the mint). Taste is malty - caramel & bread - with some earthiness to it. Picked up some spruce hoppiness as well. Medium bodied - nice brew.

Pours light amber with small white head, low carbonation. Aroma of some bitter hops and bread. Tastes a bit of earthy hops, some breads and cereals and finish was surprisingly watery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich, deep amber color with a substantial, creamy, medium-tan head. The aroma is faint but pleasant, with a combination of cereal grains, a light woodsy mustiness, and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is much more pronounced, with characteristics of sweet brown bread, a little butterscotch, and a nice pine and floral hop bitterness. The fine, light carbonation is active yet unobtrusive, but it allows the bready sweetness to linger a bit more than I would have liked.
