12oz bottle. My first Alabaman beer, a state tick that I thought I'd have to trade or travel for - I guess not with Alberta's adventurous importers - thanks, Christian!

This beer pours a slightly hazy, bright medium golden amber hue, with one fat finger of wanly puffy, loosely foamy, and rather bubbly off-white head, which leaves a decent array of curvy mountain stream lace around the glass as things drop away.

It smells of grainy, bready, and moderately pastry-like pale malt, a bit of nutty biscuit, and earthy, leafy, and lightly piney hops. The taste is biscuity caramel malt, a certain, hard to pin down oily nuttiness, a pithy pine astringency, hints of earthy yeast, and leafy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is a bit edgy at first, but settles to a dull edge soon enough, the body a sturdy medium weight, and mostly smooth, with even a minor touch of creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the caramel malt still sort of beholden to the crispy biscuity character, while leafy, piney hops mill about, shuffling their feet.

A fairly enjoyable APA, with strong ESB leanings - not a bad thing in my book. A sassy offering, worthy of a few rounds, iterations, or trips back to the fridge, and nice to see coming out of the deep south.
