Poured a light golden color. Light sweet aroma. Interesting taste. It has this buttery characteristic that reminds me of Abrasive. Also has a gritty maltyness to it. It’s decent.

One of my favorite session ales. Right there with Day Tripper from Indeed and GO TO by Stone.

Never heard of this beer but bought due to my other Surly beer experiences.

Aroma (5): Great aroma, made me want to drink right away
Appearance (4): Good bright orange color.
Taste (4): Good taste. Bitter enough, not much maltiness
Palate (3): Weird Palate. Not much "body" Didn't bother me, just the first thing I noticed.

I like this. I could add this to my regular rotation.
