12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A:Cloudy deep orange to light leather tan, almost no head but some sticky lacing, a few bubbles

S: Light a mild, i notice the roasted malts more so than the mild spicy hops, some fruity apple and pear, too

T: Perhaps the most balanced beer Ive ever tasted, the sweet fruit and the bitter hops are married in harmony

M: See notes on taste

O: What a treat always, this beer is so simple and so good

not the richest or the most exotic however it has become my current signature beer. satisfying, drinkable as a single or for a few in a quiet moment. although chilled properly it is also an excellent room-temp ale if you like to get the full measure of texture, scent and flavor . be sure to enjoy from a wide mouth [pref glass] container as the aroma is a substantial part of the experience.
