Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with apricot edges and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy floral hop aroma with hints of pine needle and fresh cut grass countered by caramel malt sweetness, toffee, and biscuit. Kind if bland without much else going on. One dimensional hop profile and the malt presence is stronger than I prefer.

Light bodied with delicate hop bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into a slightly dry finish. Light and easy to drink but not very complex or interesting. Dry, grassy bitterness countered by caramel malt, biscuit, toffee and a touch of dark fruit. Hop profile is one dimensional but has decent flavor. Malt presence is stronger than I prefer but provides some needed balance. Sessionable but kind of boring.
