Smells crisp and malty, with large toasted grain and brown sugar aromas, as well as a hint of hops.

On the tongue, the malt reigns large and immediate, coming on in waves of toasted grains that are heavily reminiscent of Grape Nuts cereal, with a distinct thread of pine, as well as caramels. Light hints of fruit esters accompany these malts, including apple and apricot notes. The hops are present from the beginning, but come through more strongly midstream as the malts fade off, and the ale finishes with a nice bitter grapefruit aftertaste. Carbonation seems to be slightly heavy, providing a nice fizz.

Overall, the flavors in this ale mingle well together, and while they are on the medium to medium-light side, enough attention has been paid to balance to make this an easily-drinkable, good quality ale. Perfect summer or bar fare, as well as being a far higher-grade alternative to Budweisers.
