Amber pour that has a half inch head.

A sweet and caramel malt aroma.

Upfront bitter that lead to lemon, earthy, grain and some salt.

Medium body that finishes creamy on the palate.

This is a unique one, Easy to drink. I could enjoy a few of these.

Pours a deep copper color with a big white fluffy head. Fairly malty and sweet aroma. Very flavorful beer. Interesting notes of sweet, salt, bitter, fruity and a little citrus. Good body with a big punch of carbonation. Great balance and a beer I think anybody could like. I had been wanting to try this for a long time and am glad I did. Looking forward to trying other beers from this brewery.
