Cask at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass and a small patch of bubbles in the center.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel malts are present in the nose along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather malty but finishes with hints of pine resin hops, the latter of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It seems to coat your mouth a little and there is some warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer has just enough hops in it to prevent any sweetness or stickiness. It's not that difficult to drink because no alcohol is perceptible in the taste.

The beer comes in a medium amber color.

The aroma smacks of pine, sticky resin, lots of green dank action, sweet caramel malts.

The flavor follows stiff piney bitterness along with lots of sticky resin, complimented by sweet malts and a lingering herbaceous bitterness.

Murky amber, thin off white head fades to a thin layer, soapy lace. Bready malt aroma, hemp. Taste is a combination of toasted malt and earthy bitter hops. Slightly vegetal, but not bad. Medium slick mouthfeel. Overall decent hoppy amber brew.
