bottle. A nice ruby copper color and a light white head. A weak aroma of sweet malts, hops and metal. Taste is pretty mild but it is balanced and the beer overall is refreshing and good for drinking while grilling.

From the bottle. Pours a caramel brown. Slightly cloudy. Khaki colored head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of bread, roasted nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet upfront, balanced with a coffee-bitter hop finish. A pretty well-balanced ale that’s easy to drink.

Btl pours clear reddish amber color. Thick,creamy off white head that lingers for a while, leaves minimal lace on glass. Smells grain,sweet cereal, a very faint toasted bread aroma and floral hops. Tastes of lightly sweet caramel malt,a faint breadiness (fresh baked) and floral hops. Light to medium body, smooth texture, lively carbonation and dry and smooth bitter finish. Good amber, nice maltiness, balanced taste, easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours smooth at high elevations. The hops are usually fairly dominant, but that is never a problem. Another great beer from a great brewery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On the pour, brown color, redish hue, a 3/4 inch light brown head. Initial tastes is good- hoppy, mild bitterness and a very smokey nose. Decent balance of bitterness and hoppy sweetness. Hints of citrus and wood. Interesting, it starts like a brown ale but finishes almost like a stout, as if it’s some sort of hybrid ale. Don’t really care for the aftertaste- a mix of bitter wood and stale hoppy notes. It doesn’t ruin the beer, but it doesn’t make it better either. Overall, pretty good start, interesting but disappointing finish, pretty refreshing. For me, very unique..
