3.75/5 rDev +1.9%
Pours a color resembling iced tea, which becomes a theme with this beer. It had a bright white frothy foam for a cap.
The aroma is a bit twangy at first but settles nicely into a more malty scent. Caramel and toffee malts, minty tea leaves and a light apricot reaches the nose.
The flavor is also malty but more of a tea leaf flavor. It actually tastes more like sweet iced tea as you drink it with a dark fruit, maybe raisin finish.
The feel is very light and refreshing, almost watery, like iced tea.
Good beer, especially if you enjoy the malt flavor that resembles the tea leaf, or should I say....iced tea.

A - Beautiful burnt amber / dark reddish brown. Clear. Lots of carbonation, big foamy head, recedes quickly, but lace still sticking to the side of my glass 5 minutes in.
S - I am just getting over a cold so my nose isn't in top shape, but I don't smell much. A little malty nuttiness. Really light, caramel quality to the hop aroma. Really nice.
T - Interesting flavor. Light bodied, easy drinking, smooth, but with lots of concentrated flavor and more complexity than is initially apparent. Light citrusy hop flavor with just a bit of brown sugar bready maltiness that gives way to lightly roasted caramel at the finish. Really enjoyable.
M - Light bodied, easy drinking, smooth. Above average carbonation. Tiny bubbles. Decent structure on finish, lingering sweetness.
O - Really nice. A great example of a beer that hit's it style requirements while giving more if you take the time to appreciate it. Subtle.
