Pours a deep copper with reddish hues and a big densely bubbled sudsy white head and lively carbonation dancing from the bottom of the glass. The head holds its own for a while before giving way to a sticky, thick lacing.
Big sweet malt and barley aroma waft from the glass, caramel like, also straw and yeast.
Earthy and pine hops are much more apparent in the flavor but well balanced by the caramel malt. The thick hop bitterness returns at the finish and lingers on the palate.
Medium to full in body with moderate carbonation and a slight hop bite that lasts.
This is a very nice beer. Nothing overwhelming, easy to drink, something to enjoy multiples of while still getting good flavor.

A: Pours copper or brass and very clear. Medium to full head. Fantastic retention with a fair amount of lacing throughout.
S: Herbal hops are dominated by caramel malts and vanilla spiced undertones. Faintest hint of apple can be found.
T: Interesting! Incredibly it is sweet at the beginning. Caramel is the most dominant flavor. There is some toast in the middle followed by a supurbly clean finish. Hops present but very mellow.
M: Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is less than expected and takes away from my enjoyment some. I think it would improve the lighter notes in the taste more if the carbonation was higher... but that is a personal thing.
O: I always find myself trying to pair light yet flavorful beers with foods. This beer should be your "type O" : IT GOES WITH ANYTHING. Fact: You could drink this at the tailgate or with a fantastic filet... and no one would be upset. A true jack of all trades. Completely drinkable. A must try for anyone who enjoys North Coast.... but not their best outing.
