look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

The color is clean bright copper with a filtered complexion. The head surfaced bright white with a fizzy thin look but a thicker longer life than anticipated.

Nutty, roasted, grainy, tea leaves and malts all join to form a nicely complex aroma. I do catch a thin whiff of hops on the tail end.

The flavors are malt forward with plenty of malted barley, grain, roasted nut, sour mash and cracker like breads. There is a touch of hops, bitter and herbal, but it's more to balance.

The feel is overly crisp, almost harsh, with a bubbly carbonated prickly sensation.

Overall, this is a Pale Ale that is simple yet has a wide array of style appropriate flavors and aromas.
