3.65/5  rDev +1.1%

Appearance: deep bright orange color with a finger of a white foam head with a good retention and a pretty strong lacing. Mostly clear but has a slight haze to it. 3.75/5

Smell: mix of caramel malts and toasted bread. Lots of earthy and spicey hops. 3.5/5

Taste: opens up with strong caramel mixed with earthy and toasty malts. Sweet bready lager yeast. Backend is pretty strong on the noble hops. Earthy and citrusy hops 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: light and easy to drink. Slight bitterness and not quite the cleanest finish. 3.25/5

Overall: not a bad beer but not quite a perfect model of the style or overally memorable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a light copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft earhy malt with a smattering of herbal noble hop.

The taste consisted of an earthy softly sweet malt that easily gave way to a prickly hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style with low carbonation.

Overall a tasty fest beer. A bit dull however.
