Poured into a perfect pint.

3.25 A: Murky orange brown color. Three plus fingers of frothy/creamy, off-white head. Retention is very good and spotty lacing is left.

4.25 S: This smells wonderful. Hops are sugary and citrusy with candied orange and pineapple. Also a strong, Pez-like candy component. It's hard to say whether this is from the hops, malts, or both. Caramel maltiness with toastiness. Booze is well hidden.

3.75 T: Taste is nearly as good. Again hops are sugary and citrusy with notes of herbalness. Mild bitterness. Caramel and toasty malts with a touch of biscuit in there as well.

3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth.

3.75 D: Solid all around. Tasty beer worth a try.

From Jim's. BB 07 2015 (!!!)

A - clear gold. Short lasting head gived great clingy lace.

S - muted, doughy, hops, yeast.

T - pils on steroids in that the hops are plentiful but grassy. Lychee, lemon. Doughy notes continue from smell.

M - lighty carbonated - could do with more. Medium body comes with high ABV.

O - well made beer and quite drinkable even if not my preferred style.
