Good malty & rounded beer that's a very good average, if that makes any sense.

Poured into a Flute Glass, Burnt Orange color, held just a bit of a film of head, well below a finger. The aroma was light, and personally one of the most lacking parts of the beer for me. It had a nice smooth malty taste upfront with a strong hoppy aftertaste with bits of piney notes in between. It was a nice, decently rounded beer that would be a great refresher. Not too much going on, but a solid beer. Aroma was the most lacking part of my personal experience with the beer.

Pours a dark orange with 2 inch head, slowly dissipates. Smells like straight malt. Taste is average, thick and malty - slightly refreshing. just not my style. Maybe good on a hot summer day?
