A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy and floral hops are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts. The malts become a little stronger once the beer warms up.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, except that the malty flavors of caramel are stronger, being more in balance with the hops. There is a light amount of bitterness and some additional hints of grassy hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found that the taste of this beer has a really nice balance between the malts and hops. I would have no problem drinking several of these in one sitting.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Murky burnt orange body. Tan head, great retention with bands of foamy lacing.

Aroma: Toasted grains, faint caramel malt sweetness, earthy tea-like hops.

Taste: On the hoppier side with a slightly buttery sweetness of malts. A tea tanginess in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Well balanced if not on the hoppy side. Pretty refreshing.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is faint caramel, with lemon, pine and cinnamon bring up the rear.
The taste has a mild sweetness that rolls into a mild lemon bitter finish. Great balance.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Good flavor and drinkability.
