Golden/amber in color, this beer pours out with a foaminess that will not quit. The beer emits a fragrance of caramel and sweet bread with some pear and possibly apple lurking in the background.

This beer has a flavor that reminds me of toasted bread with dough, caramel, and some background fruit and a hint of herbs. There is little hop character and the beer is sweet overall, with some honey notes and flavors of crackers and a little bit of chocolate showing their faces at different moments.

This is an interesting beer and it’s extremely quaffable. With its sweetness level and agreeable taste, a person could knock these back with abandon. That said, it isn’t necessarily an amazing beer and I would probably like it better if it was a little more balanced in taste. But there is still enough positive going on here to recommend it. Just be careful when you pour- my cans all overflowed the moment I popped the top and yours may do the same.

In a pint glass, this beer was a gold color with virtually no head.

One dimensional aroma, just a bit of sweet malt.

There were some hops noted in the taste, but still not much more than sweetness.

Very light, almost like drinking water.

Something to drink when mowing the lawn.

What can I say? I REALLY liked this one. Smells of sweet bready malt & honey. Tastes the same as it smells, no perceivable bitterness (Maybe cause I drink too many IPA's)
Am I the only one who gets a lot of honey notes from this? Was quite enjoyable quaffing this in my recliner after mowing the lawn. Wouldn't turn this down if offered to me again. Hell, I might try to seek out a 6'er or two if my local store can get it. A nice solid offering from Grey Sail, looking forward to checking out more from them!

12 oz can from my third beer-of-the-every-other-month-club. Poured into a large tulip glass.

A -- Pale kind of copper color with decent white head. Good carbonation. Not too hazy or clear. Highlights around the edges.

N -- Metallic. Light malts.

T -- Very subtle. Not a lot going on. Not bad, but not a lot of complexity either. Mostly a light toasted malt flavor.

M -- Light.

O -- Okay, for what it is. Would not seek out again.

Cheers.
