The best thing about this beer is the appearance. It has a nice crystal clear deeper amber color with a nice beige head to match. Light carbonation.
The aroma was light and lean.
The taste is good but also lean with hardly any flavor.
Needs some work in my opinion.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours an orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of bubbly surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Sweet cereal grain malt with a moderate hop presence and a bit of booze on the back end.

T- Bready malt that's slightly sweet with a nice hop balance. Bitterness is there and lingers a bit but isn't quite strong enough to necessarily cross over into IPA territory. Drinkable and flavorful enough to keep me sipping.

M- A bit dry from the hops and also quite viscous. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the full side.

O- I wasn't expecting too much from this but it's pretty tasty.
