3.36/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance 3.5: Pours out a very attractive deep, golden brown. Lots of little CO2 bubbles, but very little head.
Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet. light and nuanced hints of malt, yeast and hops. Everything is mid-level and not overpowering.
Taste 3.25: Front is slightly sour, but only slightly. Middle is where the hops and barley seep in, but they are very slight and somewhat dry. Finish is where more of the grains and hops pop up, but again, very subdued and more dryness present. Aftertaste is short and dry.
Mouthfeel: 3.25: Carbonation level is good for this style of beer.
Overall 3.5: Good beer, but nothing that extraordinary. What really sets it apart for me is its dryness. This is a pervasive dryness that is felt at every level of the taste. While this beer is not suited (IMHO) to a good session, it is excellent with food. I imagine it would also be great with seafood, particularly heavy, fried foods.

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.
Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.
