A bit hazy in this light amber ale with a medium sized white and seafoamy head on top that dissapates pretty quickly. It does leave some snakey lacing. The aroma is a bit musty and fruity, apricots coming to mind as well as orange rind and tangerines. Pleasant aroma even with the mustyish smell, which isn't overpowering at all. More of a hint.
Caramelly and biscuity malts up front that form a base for the other flavors of the beer. Light to medium body that works for the style, but doesn't really satisfy overall. The mustiness does come through a bit in the taste as well, as subtle as the aroma, but leaving a somewhat odd aftertaste. Tangerine taste comes out a bit, but not in abundance. The citrusy hops come in at the end with a bit more than slight bitterness and a touch of grapefruit, cleaning out most of the other flavors. Dryish finish with that odd aftertaste that doesn't really do much for me.
Not a bad beer overall, easy to drink and pretty classic to style. Not one that I would seek out however. Just a bit lackluster in this tasting, but don't let that stop you from trying it.

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.
