look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Since they dont distribute to SC I was lucky to be able to taste a few of these beers while I was out in Colardo skiing.

A:There is a clear filtered amber color. It is very carbonated and has a nice white head.
S:There is a nice malty sweetness to the beer. Also there is a mild fresh hop aroma.
T:There is a very nutty flavor to the beer. The flavor is pairs very well with the rest of the beer. There is some complexity from the hops. On the mid-palate there is some sweetness. Also I noticed some mild fruitness.
MF:Light body.
D:Very easy to drink. There is a light mouth feel so it is easy to drink a few. Also the flavor is not too aggressive, which makes for easy drinkability.

Serving type: bottle

3.64/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Very golden amber color with a small to medium head that doesn't dissipate too quickly. Visible carbonation.

Smell: caramel malts, sweet, grainy and somewhat hoppy smell.

Taste: Sweet toffee/caramel taste. Somewhat bitter aftertaste with a sweetness that is balanced with it. Medium bodied and a crisp beer.

Overall: A nice change of pace from my IPAs I typically drink. A sweet beer that is enjoyable every once in a while. New Belgium does a good job with their brews and this is another one I would recommend to try.

Serving type: on-tap
