A - Solid clear orange color. White head settles at a rocky eighth inch. Amorphous pustules of lacing mottle the margin of the tankard. lol.
S - Brown sugar malts and grassy green bitterness coming together very sweetly, minty, earthy, like week-old lawn clippings...
T - The theme continues on the taste. Starting out sugary sweet but balanced with bitterness and wheaty malts. Our grassy flavor comes in strong, ending briefly an intense hit of honey-flavored bitterness. I've come across the grass clipping flavor in other brews, mostly ambers, and I've never been too excited about it; but this one is really growing on me, I like it. Finish leaves a lemony sweet honey flavor among the bitterness.
M - Medium to thin consistency with slightly elevated carbonation; seems to work perfectly with the flavor.
D - A fine drink of beer. I'm kicking myself for not trying this sooner.

$ 1.89/12 oz bottle at Wegmens in Jamestown, NY
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Very faint malty aroma
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to an irregular layer which lasts the duration of the beer.
Lacing spotty – rings of irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body coppery, hazy
Flavor of light malt and a hint of lemon
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation
This is a good example of an amber/red ale which meets the style characteristics quite well. The malt is not overly sweet or cloying but just right. I’m not a fan of this style, but this is one I could drink all day.
