A fairly clear copper brown colored brew with a solid off-white head and
great lacing. The aroma is a very subtle grainy malt, not much else. However,
the flavor jumps out with a healthy evergreen hop blended with deep molasses
malt. There's some grass bite with a neat chocolate idea floating around. I
might add a little rye grain as well. Really pretty enjoyable with a medium body
that delivers a very fine, pretty mild carbonation and a slight resin to a
smooth, easy drinking brew. Not bad.

Served on tap at Opal Divine's Marina in Austin, TX

A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of sweet caramel and toffee malts and just the faintest hint of grassy hops.

T: The flavor of this beer is almost all sweet malts with both caramel and toffee notes. There is a light amount of grassy hops in the finish that lends a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink and could be sessionable as I could easily put a couple of these back. Nothing special but definitely an enjoyable everyday kind of beer.
