Pours a reddish amber, laces thinly down the glass. Crisp but thin, slight caramel, light hop taste which gives the maltiness a bit of a harsh taste.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber/copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and bready malts. Flavor about the same, with more hops than many pale ales. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Bottle best buy 5/12/12 (more than 2months from now). Golden amber pour with fluffy head. Sweet caramel and biscuits. A bit cloying. Not dry or hoppy and should still be good according to the freshness stamp. Disappointing beer from a solid brewer.
