3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light copper body with a slightly off white khaki head. The aroma was like fresh oranges and pecans. There is a strong malty backbone here. A dry mouthfeel is complemented with some bitter orange peels and apple core. There is a nice slight almond shell finish. Softly carbonated, this is nicely made for a session brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse, 500 ml bottle. Medium copper colored pour with a thin but persistent white head. Fresh lake water aroma, hints of grain, not very pronounced. Decent subtle bitterness with some muted fruity notes. Peaches, nectarines come to mind. Hints of muted spices as well. Slightly stinging mouthfeel. At 3.6 abv - would make a good lunchtime companion or a session bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice pour, a clear golden amber body with a foamy head. Pretty much no lace. The aroma is a light, sweet toffee with soft floral and herbal hops. The sweet malts and bitter hops are well balanced throughout the drink, although the floral/grassy bitterness increases in the end. The finish is dry with a prolonged, moderate earthy bitterness. Nice sessionable ale.
