look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

given to me a by friend in Atlanta. He says it's his new favorite. The brew has just made its way east from Colorado.

the color is lighter than you'd expect after smelling it. It's very clear, golden like apple juice. 1/2 inch thick white head.

the smell is malty and nutty.

tastes like a nutbrown ale... advertised as an amber ale. this beer is very nutty.

takes a few sips to get used to the nuttiness, but the drinkability is there after the adjustment.

Serving type: bottle
