look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours a beautiful hazy, copper color with lots of sediments floating about, a big two-finger off-white head that persisted, considerable lacing was present, above average carbonation, does not get much better than this.

SMELL: bread, flowers, spice, pine.

TASTE: sweet malt, chewy bread, piney hops, spice, this could almost pass as a mild IPA, very pleasant aftertaste.

PALATE: creamy with medium body and higher than average carbonation.

OVERALL: this is one of the first micro-brews that I ever had and helped get me interested in craft beers, I liked it then and I still like it, will definitely buy this again.

Serving type: bottle
