Was at Phil's Liqour and the owner suggested this beer after I told him what I was looking for in a beer this warm Sunday afternoon. The guy never steered me wrong before, so this is what I got. It was a copper colored ale in a stout looking clear bottle. Poured into a Sierra Nevada hop tulip it poured with a very creamy looking 1'' head which steadily receded to about a quarter inch. Smells for the glass are nuts, bread dough and a smell I cannot identify. First impressions on taste are exactly as it smells. Pleasant, pleasing, and leaving a very slight sourness that lingers on the palate, with just a touch of bitterness balancing it out. Halfway down the beer I come to a conclusion. This beer is lower in alcohol, not a ton of flavors, and nothing fancy about it, but in a good way. Like an old tree that has taken ages to attain a good form, it reflects simplistic beauty. These beers subtly lull you into spending an afternoon drinking and enjoying good beers without getting hammered. A beer that could appeal to even those who are not beer enthusiasts as well. A solid B+ to the folks who made this beer. If it wasn't 12 a six pack, I would put it into the regular rotation, but this will be a once in a while relaxing Sunday beer from now on.
