A - A finger of eggshell coloured, foamy head perches over the cloudy, orange depths. Head fades to a ring accompanied by clouds across the surface and some spotty lacing.

S - Sweet malts, caramel, honey, rye bread vs grassy, citrusy hops.

T - Honey and sweet biscuit, orange pulp, then grassy, earthy piney hops at the end.

M - Smooth moderate body, moderate the high carbonation. Alcohol is apparent. Zesty, bitter finish.

O - Nicely balanced and flavourful. Like it.

A- Pours a mahogany color with an off-white head.

S- Sweet with a hint of Citrus.

T- Malty with a dry hoppy backbone and a taste of honey. Overall, it's very smooth, crisp and refreshing.

Food Pairing- Great with spicy wings.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass

A - Dark honey/amber in color, some haziness, very slight white head with minimal lacing.

S - Definitely get malt and some hops, hard to describe, get some sweetness as well, maybe some slight citrus fruit.

T - Very malty and sweet with a nice layer of hops that brings bitterness to the finish, get some bread like flavors as well.

M - Medium bodied medium carbonation.

O - A very nice ale rendition, reminds me of some British ales. The balance of the brew allows for more than one.
