3.49/5 rDev +1.7%
A: Pours a relatively clear medium orangish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass along with copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy sudsy beige head that reduces pretty quickly to a large patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and caramel malts with light aromas of floral hops.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready, caramel, and pale malts with a light amount of initial sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of floral hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which does not linger.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Easy to drink with a nice blend of distinct malt flavors and a definitely hop presence which is not overbearing. Enjoyable and not too filling. Definitely one to grab again.

3.6/5 rDev +5%
Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Crystal clear copper with a foamy tan head, good retention. Light lacing.
Aroma: Mildly metallic but coated over with toffee and malts.
Taste: Rich malts bring out some buttery flavors mixed with some toffee and faint nuttiness. Sharp, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Pretty harsh, medium bodied.
Overall: A little too rough around the edges, but does offer some decent flavors.
