Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06. Pours copper/gold with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is dominated by citrus and tea. Tastes of light pepper, a hint of spice, some nice dry malt. Finishes lightly bitter with a nice hint of lingering dryness. This is better than the scores indicate. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Poured into a flute.
3.0 A: Light straw color and crystal clear. Two fingers of soapy head that falls quickly, even in a flute. Not really any lacing going on.
4.5 S: The aroma is quite enjoyable. Lots of sweetness, but not cloying at all. Grainy and a touch of straw. Simple, yet elegant. Hops are minimal.
4.0 T: Again, sweet yet not cloying. Earthy, a bit grainy but much less than in the smell. A bit doughy as well. Hops are minimal again and it works well.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good carbonation and creamy. Everything checks out here.
5.0 D: Pretty good beer. I usually hate the style, but this one is a winner.

Aroma is citrus, and biscuit malts. Flavor is tea, slight peppery spice. A biscuity malt body, a crispy clean finish. This is a damn good beer. Perfect for a hot day. Wheres my chair and umbrella??

Pour Form a 12 oz bottle. Deep gold color with a white head that soon dissipates. Pleasant aroma of malt and flowery hops. Flavor is an exceptionally good balance of sweet light malts with a distinctive hops bitterness. Fine finish with an excellent hops smack on the back of the tongue and lingering, pleasant, bitterness. Good mouthfeel with active carbonation. I picked up a 6 pack of this while passing through Cincinnati recently. A very good, very solid brew. Will have to look for it here in Michigan. dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2012

Very smooth and drinkable. Pleasing taste. Does not sit heavily on stomach.
