A- 3.5 Pours a hazy, rust-like orange with a small whitish head. The head dwindles away and there's fairly smooth, sticky lacing. The yeast is visible throughout; maybe I poured it too quickly.
S- 3.5 This is malty with a bit of candied fruit, perhaps from the hops. Werthers butterscotch candy comes to mind. OK, but the blend is a little one-dimensional.
T- 4 There's more of a hop presence in the taste than I got from the aroma, and that is much welcomed! It is still a sweet brew, but not overly so. There's a little citrus and yeast as well. A pretty good balance.
M- 4 Medium light body with good carbonation. Crisp. The finish is a little dry.
D- 4 I like the flavor of this one and it is certainly sessionable. It is a little sweeter than ideal and light on any knock-your-socks-off flavors, but it is easy to drink and packs a decent punch. Worth a try at least once. Before this bottle I'd only had it on tap and remember liking it even more, for what it's worth.

Pours a clear amber color. It's topped with a small white head that immediately disappears until nothing is left.
The aroma is mild, just some pleasant citrusy hops can be picked up.
The taste is a complete opposite. Starts with a slight sweetness that immediately turns to a decent bitterness. Finish is even more bitter and slight spices can be also felt.
Aftertaste just lasts and lasts - bittery and spicy.
A very nice beer. Despite strong finish, still nicely enjoyable.
