3.99/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

T: Some earthiness, some caramel, some citrus. Balanced but light
M: On the lighter side, crisp
O: This would make a fine session ale but won't be memorable
