Reviewed from notes. Consumed 8/4/09
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard water glass. Firm pour evokes a 3/4 inch head consisting of fine white bubbles. No lace. Color is a clear golden copper.
Nose- Mild hop profile balanced with a touch of caramel malt.
Pallate- A very nice, balanced amber ale. Plenty of nutty slightly chewy caramels, coupled with a crisp refreshing, slightly lemon citric hop bite. Hops are not over powering, but rather a faintly tart and bitter compliment. Wonderfully executed.
Mouthfeel- Active, faintly tart.
Drinkability- Great, magnificent session beer.
