A nice goldenish red body body w/ a decent head that had slow retention and left lace down the glass. Light-bodied and smooth and there is a bready malt base along with some minor citric hops. Unfortunately, the sweet malts don't get a chance to shine as they are somewhat overpowered and the finish is a bit unbalanced and overly dry. A decent ale but just not up to snuff.

a: served in a shaker pint glass, medium amber in color, light layer of carbonation and some spotty lacing

s: sweet caramel malt, quite biscuity, mild grassy/herbal hop aromas

m: carbonation light-moderate, body the same with a slight sugary slickness

t: opens with sweet caramel, some flavors of sugary light fruits, crackery/biscuit malt, hops mild with a dry grassy flavor

o: certainly pretty plain but not a bad option, the biscuity malt is nice and the beer drinks well as a whole

draft at Taphouse Ghent, Norfolk

A nice session beer or one to have with food. This one was a brew of the month selection at the Green Parrot in Va Beach VA. Good hazy reddish/amber color. Medium size white head, fades fast, minimal lacing.

Smell is mild - sweet caramel and bready malts. Taste features sweet malt with a little bitterness at the end.Overall nice blend of flavors and a great partner with seafood.

Mouthfeel is average, a little rich and a little crispness. Drinkability is good, well balanced - not too sweet and low enough abvto enjoy with food.

Nioe to see a local brewery featured in a Tidewater VA establishment. A pretty good beer!!!

thanks LambicKing!

Super light amber body. Pushing damn near orange. Thick frothy white head.

The smell is dead on for a malty red. Like scarily on. Biscuitty malt dominates the smell, with a hint graininess coming in late. Light caramel and toffee try to come in as well. I love how this smells. seriously.

Im not 100% on how I feel about the taste, Its very earthy, more so than Great Lakes. Theres an astrigent-type bite that lingers that Im not fond of. Its very earthy, and could use a good dose of either sweet malt or serious hops.
