12 oz. bottle bought as a single for $2.29. Poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Deep honey-colored amber body, very cloudy. Topped by a pillowy two-finger ivory head, slowly dwindling to a full cap of foam, that leaves behind fading rings of lacing on the glass. Some lively carbonation is visible through the body, even through the cloudy body.
Aroma: Very nice. Definitely some caramel/toffee notes from the malt, but adequately balanced by crisp and spicy hops - also picking up some dark fruit and ever-so-slight pine resin. A well-balanced beer in the nose, hoping it follows through in the flavor.
Taste: Oh yeah. Tasty and refreshing. I'm hit with a burst of some toasted malt/grain on the front of the palate as well as caramel, followed by some crisp and lively spicy/floral hop flavors. The finish has a lot going on: Some pine bitterness is there, but rounds out with biscuit flavors, and it finishes very clean. A well-balanced brew, very drinkable and enjoyable. Nice mix of flavors.
Mouthfeel: Very full, but medium-bodied. Refreshing and not heavy at all. Crisp and dry finish when some lingering grassy bitterness. Well-carbonated body.
Overall: Wasn't sure to expect here, but this is a very satisfying and drinkable brew. Not sure if I would shell out for a six pack, but I enjoyed this for what it was. Worth a try at least once for everyone.
