Poured from bottle in to pint glass
Appearance – Pours a nice amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent level of lacing on the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of caramel and some light roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these are subtle hop aromas of citrus and a light herbal smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some of the bready and caramel flavors. These are quickly meet by a lighter fruit flavors of a sweeter citrus hop as well as some very light roasted notes. As the taste advances to the end a light herbal flavor come to the tongue and leave a sweet, light hop, and light roast flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the average side with a carbonation level that is slightly lighter than the average. Perhaps a bit more carbonation would have made it a bit more crisp and good for the fruit and herbal hops, but yet the not as good for the roasted flavors. It’s hard to say which would be better.
Overall – A good easy dining brew with some nice flavors. Quite tasty.
