Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper-amber hue with a thin, 2-finger, white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a partial trail down the glass.

S: Bread and biscuit aroma that is slightly sweet with hints of caramel.

T: Flavors of Caramel, breads, and hops. Finishes a little sweet and dry.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Great beer – well balanced, smooth, and unique.

Poured an amber orange with a huge amount of bubbles at the bottom of the glass.

Smell of citrus,lemons some sweet malts.

Tastes malty a bit sweet not a lot going on.

Mouth feel is quite dry and pretty well carbonated.

This is the first steam beer I've had,it was ok I'd say it was a slightly above average lager.
