12 oz can with cool art. Poured into a pint glass, the brew is a hazed amber/bronze color with a white soapy head leaving webby lacing.
The aroma has a bit of nutty, toasted malts and a good helping of floral, citrusy hops. I would say it smells fairly hoppy for the style.
In the taste, nice crisp hops and a toasty malt character. Reminds me of a hoppy ale version of an Oktoberfest, or perhaps simply a "dark pale ale" which is a most humorous description. This is what we have come to, categorizing and recategorizing until it makes little sense. Essentially, this is a toasty, mildly fruity ale with a good backbone of orange, other citrus and herbal hop flavor and a solid bitterness.
Light to medium bodied, well carbonated brew with a cleaner finish. Drinks easily and is pretty tasty.
Overall, this is a reliable choice when in the Ohio area. If this was a mainstream beer available in my area I'd quite prefer this over the usual suspects. Good hop flavor and enough character to keep things interesting.
