Pours a deep amber almost rust color, nice head that left behind some thin lacing.

The aroma is sweet with citrus and a light hop scent.

Taste is where I am most impressed. Sweet caramel up front more citrus and a nice hop bitterness at the finish. Very well balanced.

Light-Medium body with the right amount of carbonation to round out the beer.

This is my go to beer. It isn't the best in the world, its just damn good.

I have to say, I have had this beer many times both on tap and from the bottle. It is a very good brew. I have read all of the reviews and have racked my mind, because I couldn't quite agree with the citrus, carmel, Appel and floral reviews. They all are close, but to me the taste is plum or date/fig like. It has other notes, but the plum/date/fig really stands out to me. More so out of the bottle than tap. This is a great beer regardless of what taste you can put your finger on.
