3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from drake party store, Kalamazoo, MI. Clear copper pour into pint glass. Inch tall medium density offwhite head. Left lots of thick lacong on glass. Strong pine hop scent, ever so slightly citrusy. Very subtle, soft, balanced flavor. Hops are more detectable than specific malts. Taste is very piney and slightly metallic, copper like. Finish is bitter, metallic (appropriately-in a good way) and grassy. Very light autumn beer that, because of its subtle hoppiness, will do well weaning one off of the summer IPA's and transition into fall/winter porters and stouts. Note: look elsewhere for a typical fall octoberfest/marzen, this is not that. Another great beer from southern tier.

Delicious beer that makes a nice change from the regular IPA fare. Full bodied and well balanced, it’s a brew I can see myself having a few of for sure.

Tap, pours a clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma had a little more hops than I was expecting with still quite a bit of bread and caramel sweetness rounding it out, the flavor has a hop front end with some spice in the finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff.
