3.94/5 rDev +7.7%
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle into a shaker glass. sampled on April 26, 2014.
The pour looks correct with its copper-amber color, modest off-white head, and slightly unfiltered haziness.
Nice composite of aromas including roasted caramel, toffee, biscuit, and fragrant grassy, earthy hops.
The body is a bit better than medium.
The taste brings out a quick malty flavor at first and then a quick eruption of hop bitterness that balances it all off in a complex and enjoyable fashion. It lives up to its title of a session beer.

Thanks go out to Yamar 18 for the 2 bottles. Cheers, Kevin!
A huge billowy head of foam sitting on a medium golden brew, there's lots of nice lacing.
I get a flowery type of hop aroma backed up by some grain and a bit of sweet malt.
The taste is gracefully balanced with notes of caramel and grainy malt and a flowery hop flavour. A light presence of earth shows up after a few sips in. Dang, this is good.
On the light side of medium bodied with a bit too much carbonation for my liking else the mouthfeel
would be great.
This is one heck of a good session ale at 4.5% abv! Highly recommended.

Appearance: A slow gusher, with a huge head plopped above the hazy amber liquid; as one would expect, the head grows craggy and leaves a lot of lace behind
Smell: Bready, with a lemon edge
Taste: The bready malts form a base upon which the lemony and somewhat grassy hops linger; somewhat herbal, particularly after the swallow
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; overcarbonated and aqueous
Overall: Although I love good session beers, I am afraid I am not a fan of the flavor profile or the mouthfeel here

T - Very thin flavor, has the traits mentioned in the aroma, but that its very watery.
M - Thin, lacking feel.
O - Session ale? sure is, but its not big on flavor.

Pours an orange-amber color with a quality, tight, creamy looking head. Mellow grassy and floral hop aromas mix with some toasted caramel malt and a trailing slight leafy, resinous note. Light, spicy citrus bitterness, malt, a little tea, and fruity yeast. A little watery, but tasty enough to be a decent session beer. Light bodied and dry with an earthy bitterness.
