A- nice copper color, half finger of off white head, large bubbles, head goes down pretty quick.

S- malty sweetness, not much hops, little caramel in there, really not much going on

T- caramel sweetness, light maltiness, little bit of hops in the end, some breadiness

M- light, goes down easy, a little dry I guess

O- this is just a very simple beer, not much going on, drinkable but very little flavor profile.

A: A very beautiful copper color, with lace all the way down, two finger head that had a decent retention, a very pretty beer, the off white head looks very nice alongside the copper.

S: From the bottle, smelled very pleasant. Earthy, bread smells mixed with a slight fruity smell. In the pint glass there was no discernable smell.

T: Very crisp, light malt and bread flavor at first that becomes thin with almost no aftertaste in a glass. After tasting directly from the bottle the taste is greatly improved and has a very pleasant, slight sweetness to it. I wouldn't recommend pouring this one. (Would make a nice session beer)

M: A very watery, thin feel. But with a pleasant silkiness accompanying it.

O: Goes down smooth in a glass, but I prefer it directly from the bottle. It seems to retain more of its flavor that way.
