For being a session beer, this is one of the best I’ve had so far. Full of flavor and hop characteristics!

Malts (a bit roasty, possibly from the aging), grains and nuttiness. The flavor is malty with a bit of fruit, possibly a mix of a dark fruit and raspberry. Pretty good overall.

Relaly only good when you start getting through the bottle. It starts pretty hoppy but also rubbery, the rubber goes away and turns into slight sweetness, bread, and oak.

Tap. Pour is a deep clear brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is very nice with hints of caramel malt, light fruit, light wood, and light vanilla. Very full aroma. Flavor is true to nose with lots of vanilla coming through along with the light toffee malt. Really a spectacular mild ale. Plenty of round full flavor combined with a very drinkable body. Great effort here. Best mild I have had.

Bottle. Dark orange pour, very little carbonation and a nice aroma of orange marmalade. Flavor is light malts, balanced orange citrus and finished pleasantly sweet. Will definitely be buying more of this.

From a bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small, white foam ring around the edge of my glass. Nose is tart and fruity with a hint of oak. Flavor is caramel malt and some spice. Much different than what i anticipated from the aroma, but still really quite good. Very sessionable!

Deep amber with an off-white head. Sweet fruits, toasty malts, berries, and a bit of molasses in the aroma. Lightly toasted biscuit malt, some sweet malt, fruits, berries, and a light brown sugar. Full, smooth body. A really nice brew.

Highly drinkable ale, but nothing really stands out for the style. Dark amber/copper color, thin white head. Moslty malt in the nose, slightly earthy with a touch of citrus. lemongrass. Light bodied with a clean finish.
