Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a golden colored brew with a tiny white head. The head faded fast to leave very light level of lacing.

Smell - The aroma was a mix of a biscuit and bready aroma with some lighter notes of an earthy and hay-like aroma.

Taste - The taste begins with flavors of a lighter caramel sweetness and a biscuit base. As the taste moves on the sweetness fades some as flavors of an earthy nature come to the tongue. More toward the end of the taste, the earthy flavors grow even stronger and are joined by a light herbal flavor which in the end, leave a dry bitter flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the light to average side with a carbonation level that was rather average. It makes for an easy to drink brew, but lacks some complexity which may have been better to accentuate the bitter flavors.

Overall – An OK beer. It tasted and drank very much like a standard APA but lacked some of the finer flavor transitions and subtle flavors of a great APA.
