The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a thick frothy off-white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a malt forward scent that boasts of pale, crystal, and biscuit malts along with a mild Simcoe hop aroma. The hop character is relatively muted by the malt aroma. The taste is good as well. It has a well balanced flavor that focuses on a complex malt bill that boasts of caramel and biscuit malts. The Simcoe hops are present, but don't dominate like I would hope. It's citrusy with a touch of "cat pee" aroma. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a tasty brew, but not what I was hoping for. I appreciate the maltiness, but it's hard to concentrate on a single hop character when there is such a rich caramel malt presence.
