1pt 6oz bottle

A-Blond-ish amber. Almost opaque, but not cloudy. Great foam, when it settled, it stayed and clumped a bit in little lilly pads.
S-Not much, very mild - a little bit of bitter apple, but not too much else.
T-Very mild: some lemon/citrus, coriander and some other spice in the background and just a nice balance that doesn't knock you out. This would go really well with fish or noodles, which is what I bought it for. When it warmed up a little, I could actually taste some bitter orange and some other spices on the finish.
M-light, but doesn't evaporate completely.
D-I will totally be drinking this with fish and japanese noodles - I could have a few of these; alcohol is not discernable and this is a nice drinking beer.

This was GREAT with stir fry. The beer, which seemed light, actually stood up to the food and the food gave me the ability to taste more in the beer.

A: Cloudy amber ale, not much in the way of head. What head there is remains coating the top of the beer.

S: Grains, sweet biscuit malts, citrus, and light floral hops. Very sweet smelling beer.

T: Toasted grains, caramel malts, a kiss of floral hops. Not a very aggressive flavor, but pleasant.

M: Light, watery, and moderate carbonation.

O: A very forgettable beer. Nothing stands out about it much at all. A pleasant beer, just ordinary
