Beautiful sweet aroma that hits the right spot. The flavor is nice and crisp with a slight dry after taste almost like the after taste of grapefruit. A very pleasant experience and one well worth trying. Goes great with wheat crackers and Cheddar cheese.

16 ounce can. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A nice fruity nose, some oranges. The flavor is caramel, toasted malts, a pretty robust bitterness, oranges, lots of late boil here. Very clean and flavorful.

Canned: hard to tell based on info on bottom of can
It’s a toasted amber with a solid quilt of protein tan foam. Smells of tea, some resin hops, lots of crystal malts, not much else. Has that Special B smell. Has that Special B flavor, some tea, some caramel, a bunch of bitter with grassy hop character. Full bodied for the style with low carb and a wet finish. Nice amber if you ask me.

This beer pours from a can a hazy orange-amber color with a thick and foamy light beige head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of piney hops, caramel malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

The taste is toast, earth, varnish, wood, orange, light metal and decent bitterness with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy going and rather drinkable. A solid APA.
