Appearance - A frothy, khaki colored head raises to about an inch. The beer is a clear, copper color with visible carbonation.

Aroma - Smells of malts, toasted bread, caramel sweetness with some hops in the background.

Taste - Similar to the smell, nothing overpowering on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation a bit upfront with a medium body and a sticky finish.

Overall - A decent brew but nothing earth shattering.

Bottled November 20, 2013.

A: Hazy copper-amber body with a finger of foamy white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Toasty malts and some earthy hops. Light but pleasant.

T: Mild and sweet caramel/bread malt flavor with earthy, floral, and citrus hops.

M: Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, very smooth and creamy, goes down easily.

O: Incredibly easy to drink. I hadn't had this in a while, but it reminds me of how a lot of people (myself included) treat Bell's Oberon in the summer- very sessionable (not in terms of ABV, but balance and enjoyability).
