Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean and clear golden amber color with an inch of of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma was a very nicely balanced blend of grain and hops that, while distinct, melded together nicely. Sadly, there was just a slight bit of cattiness that I found a bit off-putting. On the tongue however, the beer was all full, earthy grains and crisp hops that complemented each other very nicely indeed. The beer had a bit of a tart hop finish that lingered for a few moments. No sign of the kitty.

The body was nicely medium, very smooth, easy and crisp. Drinkability was excellent, you could drink these all afternoon long and not get fatigued or bored. Overall, a very good take on the style that borders on excellent. A must try if you see it and worth a trip to the breweries tasting room if you happen to be in the Seattle area.
