9/17...clearly I enjoyed more than the consensus. Light to medium amber, thick white foam. Very clingy. Lighter buttery malt nose. Malty taste bright and citrussy. Buttery taste as well. Quite bready. Solid.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, earth, caramel, and slight metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing really stands out about this one.

Serving type: bottle.
