a. orange see through with minimal head, dissipates early.
s. All I get is apple cider vinegar.
t. The vinegar taste is in the finish. There is some body that saves this rather average beer taste.
O. This beer is not going to be revisited. It is slightly above Okay.

3.49/5 rDev -5.2%
Poured from a pint bottle into an imperial pint glass.
A - Light copper with a touch of haze. Almost no head after a not-too-gentle pour. No lacing to speak of.
S - Nice earthy, hoppy, floral smell with a bit of malted grain.
T - Lots of bitter hop and wild, medicinal flower. A nice roasty, grainy malt flavour. The end of it all is almost reminiscent of a cup of Ceylon or Darjeeling.
M - Really like a nice malty pale that turns into tea right before you swallow it.
O - Not my favorite ale, but it's a nice change-up at times. I like this one really cold. It's really more of a beer for a quite contemplative evening rather than a refresher after sweaty lawn work.
