Courtesy of sebletitje, pours clear copper with micro thin white head. The aroma has mild level of pine hops mixing with rough earthiness and spiciness. The taste has an even mix of citrus, pine hops, some roasty malts and earthiness. By about midway there is an island of malt graininess before the hops and modest roast return to wipe away the grains into the finish.

cheers to Googzoid10 for the trade.
pours nice copper, small white-off white head.
aroma, nice malts, biscuity nose, pale malts and mild hops.
flavors, malty, grainy, mild bitterness, malt profile comes out as not too strong but enough to help enhance the experience. Light bready/biscuit malts with moderate piney finish.

22oz capped bottle. Pours a very slight chill hazed copper caramel with a decent size tan tinted white head that fades rather quickly. Nose is lightly sweet with caramel and bread as well as very faint esters. Also get some pine, resin and ligh orange. Medium light feel with snappy carbonation. Up front the is a light piney, peppery and slight orange hops combined with plenty of bready malt character and hints of caramel.

Just balancing out the overall here. This is a fantastic beer. Not my favorite style, but still a delicious and unique version of a steam. A bit sweet and bitter - really nice.
