4.12/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: amber with gold highlights, thick, fluffy off white head and pristine clarity. A delicious beer to behold

Aroma: rich bread and caramel aromas with some toast and sweetness, as well as slight bitter notes

Taste: bready, caramelly, and warming with some sweetness on the drink and enough bitterness on the finish to stiffen it up. Medium finish and terrific balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation that leaves a tingly mouthfeel, medium body, very crisp

Overall: Balanced, bready, caramelly, but with a bitter and tingly finish. Impressive in every way.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured out a clear copper color with 3 plus fingers of tan head. Great retention and quite a bit of foamy chunks of lacing stuck to the glass.

S: Scents of toasted malt, breadiness and a sweet touch of toffee.

T: Similar to the smell with a terrific hop balance. I'm also tasting a little bit of a lemony tartness likely from the hops.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Nothing fancy.

O: Very impressed with this brew. The surprising hoppiness is what made this beer for me. Other similar beers seem to be baseless and the hops are what really made this beer rich and full.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle served in a standard pint glass

Appearance: As the label says, it pours copper in color with with 1+ finger of an off white head. Some fine suspended sediment is visible.

Smell: Bready and toasty malt, hint of nuttiness, fruity esters, hint of caramel.

Taste: Toasted malt, bread crust, nuts, floral hops. Malt sweetness dominates the palate upfront before yielding to a medium hop bitterness in the finish. While the bitterness is far from high, it took me a bit by surprise given the lack of hop presence in the aroma

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good stuff. It's nothing special or worth going crazy over, but it delivers as advertised.
