Pours Amber with fluffy beige head. Smell is tea and Amber ale like malt. Taste is very tea like and a bit sweet in finish. Lightly earthy and hoppy. Decent but I don’t like the iced tea flavor in beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A single b0ttle fr0m the l0cal Jewel: The b0dy is an amber/c0pper c0l0r t0pped by a skinny ecru head. The ar0ma is quite sweet, caramel, l0ts 0f it, with an underlying spiciness, s0me fl0ral n0tes, mayhaps, and a shake 0f black pepper. Creamy m0uthfeel. It tastes mainly 0f caramel, n0t 0verly sweet, with an earthy bitterness al0ng with s0me subtle spices. I like the flav0r. N0t 0verp0wering, but mildly sweet, spicy, and easy t0 drink. It’s a repeatable change 0f pace f0r this av0wed h0p-head.
